Inspired by the Vivienne Jumper – 2 Versions of the same dress both made from 1 man’s long sleeve button down shirt (“Before” picture included). Version 2 also made from an upcycled pair of denim blue jeans. White cotton knit lining also made from an upcycled flat sheet! Hopefully you can see the front of the man’s button down was reused as the back of the toddler dress! This left a neat row of accent buttons down the back which were then coordinated with the buttons at the shoulders. Finally, I decided to add one little accent pocket made out of the same denim for the front of this cute little dress.
