I started with this very pretty blouse from my closet.
It's gorgeous right? But it always did look better on a mannequin than it did on me.
I couldn't bare to throw it away though. Just look at all the lovely stitching on the yoke.
Soooooooo, I turned it into the cutest little dress for my niece!
I took all the pieces of the blouse apart (I still have plans for the sleeves and the bodice) and inserted some small shirred pieces into the side. Then I just made a gathered skirt and attached some ties.
It was super easy to do and probably took me less than a couple of hours to put together.
