I bought a cute skirt for Ella at the Op Shop but she refused to wear it because it was "too long".
(She is quite a headstrong little fashionista ... and a red-head too!!!)
So I shortened it and added a little ric rac for trim.
Then I took a flower from the off-cut piece and appliqued it to a white t-shirt she also refuses to wear because it is "too plain".
... and voila!!
Let's hope she'll wear it this time!!
EDIT: We're home and she loves it! Phew!!!
They look great! She'll be the best dressed kid in town. I love a gingy in pink. XX
I love how you have given the little skirt and t-shirt a make-over. It looks fabulous. Let's hope this little girl agrees, they have an innate knowledge of all things pink and glitzy these days!
I bet it looks much better after a revamp too! I love it and I'm sure it will go down well. Love the fabric and the flower on the t-shirt is fab.
Goreous Andi! Little miss cannot refuse now!! So pretty x
She better wear it - it's adorable! I just love that color combo, it's my favorite!
What great repurposing and revamping!
Andi I have had my 4 year old looking over my shoulder as I read this and she said, "Mummy I want you to get some fabric like that and then make it into a skirt like that for me ok? And what's that 'grissly' bit? I want that too." She was referring to the ric rac ;) Now, if i was to actually make this skirt I can assure you she would refuse to wear it for at least a few months until she felt the pressure was off!
Very cute, well done!
Very clever and cute. I hope she wears it now. Just came across this idea and it made me think of you re-fashion, I though you might like a look too. http://grosgrainfabulous.blogspot.com/2009/08/teecycle-dress-tutorial-and-giveaway.html
Dear, oh, dear - these littlies sure know what they want! Let's hope you have approval now - you have made a wonderful little outfit!
Hugs - Lurline♥
Oh how darling!! I love what you have done with it, how could she not love it? I loved your wedding pics by the way Andi, you guys looked so pretty and happy (well, he looked handsome, you looked pretty), and your wedding dress...just gorgeous. xo
Wow - looks great! well done on your uncycling!
wow--you made it look so simple! and it's awfully cute. my almost-4-year-old hates wearing dresses/skirts right now--i wonder if i can convince her with this outfit?!
That is so cute! When I see these things, I wish I had a little girl to dress along with the three boys!
What a dear little skirt and top. I love the color.
