Old Shirts to Toddler Dresses –  3 Different Looks

I have this giant box of junk clothes that no longer fit, or that I picked up at garage sales for repurposing. Recently I decided to make some dresses for Ada, and Brian decided he wanted to help! Once again, yes, my husband can sew. I think they all turned out super cute! Actually, I made these during the summer and forgot to post about them until now, I’m a little behind… Shirred Tank Top Dress Old tank that was too big to...
