Lala's Dress from My Polo Shirt
Olivia is kind of growing like a weed. But only in the upward direction.
So most of her dresses that used to be, ya know, dresses have now been re-categorized as shirts.
Which is fine, except that now she's short on dresses.
She still has a few that fit her, but I'm tired of dressing her in them every single Sunday.
So last Sunday before church I took this old polo shirt of mine...
...and turned it into this:
A little funky, maybe, but definitely an improvement on that shirt as a whole.
Those little miniature sleeves get me every time.
How do you have arms that small?
The dress was a fast, easy sew.
Mainly because I didn't have to make up the method of creation.
I followed the how-to in this post on I Still Love You.
While the post isn't really set up in the typical style of a tutorial, Melissa gives plenty of information on recreating the sweet little dress she made for he daughter.
Maybe there's a reason I'm always nervous about sewing with stripes. :)
The main thing is, Olivia was happy to wear it.
And it's long enough on her!
(With a little room to grow.)
Oh. And it was...
(wait for it)
