Toddler Dress From Blouse

Yesterday, I had the idea to make a little shirt dress for my granddaughter from a women's blouse that I picked up the other day for 75¢.  It's made from a cotton/lycra blend so it should be comfy and stretchy.  I trimmed it with vintage bias tape trim that I bought for 49¢ at Goodwill.  And, when I say vintage, I mean vintage...it originally sold for 8¢!  It was a little tricky on some parts, but all in all I really like the way it turned out.  

So, here's the blouse....

This was the package of bias tape...

And here's the final project...

  1. So so so CUTE! I can't wait for Olivia to wear it!

  2. Great idea to add the contrast trim to the collar, sleeves and pockets. A fabulous refashion.


Thanks for taking the time to comment. I appreciate the feedback and always look forward to reading what you have to say! Susan
