School Attire-Part Six


This is probably my last project for Kid's Clothes Week at elsie marley. I'm sad I couldn't make something everyday, but I'm still happy I was able make two thing that I really love. It will also probably be the last School Attire refashion. I have so many other projects to work on and my girls have plenty of clothes.

This refashion started out as a eyelet skirt from American Eagle. I bought it secondhand to wear with leggings. I never did.


I think it's much cuter as a little dress. Please excuse the candy I shamelessly bribed my daughter with.

I used the ruffled detail from the top of the skirt to embellish the bodice.


The dress screams fall to me. I think she is ready for some apple picking or apple pie eating.

Thanks for all of your kind comments on all of my School Attire refashions. I would love to go on forever. It's a good thing kids grow and there is always a new season.

Got to tell you. I just came across this on Pinterest & clicked the link thinking "maybe I could afford this". I had assumed you could actually buy it somewhere. It looks that good!! So disappointed that I can't, but so impressed with your skills! (And your little girl is adorable!)
