Description

I HAVE UPCYCLED A BABY DRESS INTO AN AGE 3 TUNIC. I ADDED WHITE COTTON INSERTS TO THE SIDE AND SHOULDER SEAMS TO ENLARGE THE ORIGINAL DRESS AND THEN ADDED LARGE LACE APPLIQUE PATCHES TO ADD DETAIL AND COVER THE PATCHWORK OF DIFFERENT FABRICS. IT WILL BE A HANDY TOP FOR SPRING TO GO WITH JEANS OR LEGGINGS.

    looks like something the Gap would charge $50 for… great job! :)

    Oh it’s so pretty! The applique details are a nice touch. Also it’s a great idea/way to adjust and revamp kids clothes as they grow.
