Baby Dress For Evie Jo


Last Sunday, I stopped by our local Goodwill shop and found a cute little flippy skirt that had some pretty embroidery at the hem. I should have taken a before picture, but was too eager to start sewing!

After washing it up, I cut off the waistband and ended up with some very pretty fabric for a baby dress


I bought some white eyelet fabric at Joann's and turned it all into a cute little baby dress for Evie Jo


I forgot that pattern sizes run a little larger than ready made, so Evie has to grow a little before this will fit her.

It was fun to get back to my favorite kind of sewing. It's been a long time since I have made any clothes.

Just precious....and wonderful idea to reuse, repurpose clothing.

Oh Mary - It's adorable! Evie Jo will look so cute in it when she's ready! I would have never thought to re-purpose something like this! I agree - garment sewing can be so rewarding - especially when it's for your adorable granddaughter!
Cheers!
