I made this little dress for my daughter from my old blouse. I just added elastic into the neckline and sleeves (I cut them off a bit). There was a tie at the neckline previously, I cut it off and made ties at the back of the dress with it. Than I added two white buttons to decorate the neckline a bit. I love the romantic look and I think it has kind of 20s feel with the dropped waist.
