britynn's green ruffle dress

Little Rock, Ark...






I made this dress from an old mumu that I found at a rummage sale. It was huge but I loved the bright kelly green color and knew it could have a new life….

I used McCall’s pattern M5388 and altered it into a dress. The back of the dress is actually the original front of the mumu, but I liked the buttons so used it as the back. This is my first recycling project and am so happy about it! and especially the fact that it only cost about 50 cents!! haha

Material Notes

huge old mumu found at a rummage sale, thread, McCalls pattern M5388
