More refashioning


More digging in the refashioning pile uncovered this pretty skirt, with an unusal bold print.



I decided it would be perfect for a little girl's party dress and spent the evening tinkering away, with a little guidance from the Ice Cream Social Dress tutorial at craftinessisnotoptional.com. And this is the outcome...


I had intended this to be for my 18 month old niece. However, it appears I made an error in measuring the length (or could it be, I failed to measure the length at all!) and had to adjust the length and re-do the trim, so the final dress was a fair bit shorter than the picture. I seem to have a tendency for learning from my mistakes, but it all worked out in the end so hey-ho!
