I know school has started and I'm a little behind. But, I've still got a few more things I wanted to make.
Instead of using our donate pile for this refashion, I used three 4x womens tank tops to get two darling knit dresses.
I picked up the tank tops at the DownEast Clearance Center. I fell in love with the bright yellow and knew I wanted to make some dresses.
I used another dress to make my patterns but you can get the same look by following Dana's instructions HERE.
I also made my first pair of leggings. It was so simple. I'll be making lots more. I used Dana's Short's Tutorial, but traced a pair of leggings instead.
I used the ribbing on the neckline for the tops of my pockets.
Because it was knit, once the pockets were cut I could sew them down, leaving the edges unfinished.
My daughter was happy to have mismatched leggings. She said she liked being the same but also a little different.
Now, I need your help! Both of these cute girls are having there tonsils taken out tomorrow. It's a ten day recovery, so I don't know if I'll be blogging much. I'm hoping some of you will have some advice on how to make recovery easier. Do you know any good recipes for food they can eat? What do you do with a child who is recovering for that long, other than endless movies? I would love any advice you have. Thanks!
