Yes we just had a birthday and have no shortage of clothes. But I couldn't help myself. I was putting away all my fabric, fabric scraps, fabric accessories, and old clothes needing to be re purposed into their new home, (yes! they have a home! in a room devoted to them!) when I came across this old shirt and instantly saw something new.
So I am not a pattern follower or a very good direction taker. I took a chance sewing knit for the first time and it came out... not horrible!
She wore the dress all day and rolled around in some dirt, spilled passion tea down the front of her and mama didn't even a blink an eye because really that dress didn't cost a thing. I'm on a re purposing old t-shirt mission now.
Sometimes avoiding doing your chores makes beautiful things! (Im pretty sure that is how Isabella was made too)
