30 minutes is about all you need to pull off a dress like this. Unless your sewing machine decides to hate you. Sometimes that happens to me.
This was round 2 of trying to use up some knit shirts I have stashed. Which by the way, I was blown away by all the nice comments on my first dress. Thank you all for being so kind and encouraging.
I cut off just enough for the skirt section from this shirt I swipped from my sisters donate pile. I’d say it was a noble donation.
Then I snagged this one dollar onesie I come across. Can’t beat that (unless its free, I suppose). I chopped it just below the armpits.
I gathered the top to fit onto the onesie.
And stitched them right sides together.
To make the waistband I cut off some fabric from a white ribbed knit t-shirt and stitched all around the waistline. It was double layered and I left the edges raw for the look.
I made and applied the fabric rosettes using fabric-tac. I love the stuff, but to be honest, I’ve never used it on things that would need to be laundered. I’m hoping it will be okay. The package did say washable.
And of course the girl will need a headband because even though she wears pink and a dress, people will still ask if it’s a boy 🙂
And wearing such a cute dress, big sisters give her plenty of smothers and love. Who can resist little baby hands?
And now that baby is equipped with a super comfy knit dress also, biggest sister is begging for hers. She wants it to look like a rainbow. Hmmm. My stash is only so colorful. Any suggestions?
