I had a Charlotte Rouse and a Gap shirt that no longer fit my ever expanding waist, so I decided to make my daughter a dress. I had no pattern, it was pretty easy. I’m not happy with how it turned out, but since it is the first garment I have sewn….I’m cutting myself a break.

Material Notes

Charlotte Rousse cotton T-Shirt
Gap silk tank top

    Cut yourself that break, definitely. It’s really cute and I can see how much your daughter loves it. Great to let the garments live again in another form. What a start!
