Last week when I wrote about a flopped top I was making for my niece's first birthday, several of you asked to see the fabric. Mom even had a few good suggestions for fixing it, but after I let it sit for a couple days I decided to remake it into something completely different.
I cut ruffles off of the top, took the hems out (yes, I do a lot of ripping out too!) and fashioned the ruffles into a simple tiered skirt with an elastic waist. I was really happy that I didn't end up wasting too much of the fabric after all.
Then I bought a plain white 12mo shirt at Walmart and appliqued a simple flower on it. Viola...it's an outfit!
The hat was from the original pattern I was using. It came out huge...seriously, it fits my 3 year old. Oh well...it will fit her someday!
