TUTORIAL: Turn an old romper (or onesie or t-shirt) into a DRESS
Since it's super hot down here in South Louisiana it's the most perfect time to pull out those summer dresses. My daughter, Catherine, seems to be outgrowing her clothes faster than I can sew them, so I decided she needed a "new" dress. I found an old green romper that she had outgrown and decided to make use of it once again.
Materials: old romper (onesie or t-shirt) , 3/8 inch elastic (cut 5 inches shorter than your child's waist), material for dress skirt (I used 3/8 of a yard)
1. Cut off the romper at 8 inches (to give it an empire waist) and save the remaining material for craft projects (and a ruffle embellishment for the dress).
Catherine started saying, "It's pretty. Mommy made it."
And my heart just melted obviously!
I couldn't get a smile, but at least she stood still.
I will sew for this sweet baby girl any day!
Have fun! Send me a picture if you make one!
