Yes, another shirt dress!

5:49 PM

Remember how I made a Shirt Dress for one of the little girl's I'm staying with in Mississippi? Well, I made another one for her big sister. I realized that I was leaving in less than a week and the clock was ticking so I had to start and finish it. Over at MADE, you can find the tutorial for this darling dress. I definitely made a few mistakes as you can see. 

 I made a rolled flower out of the denim and just pinned it on.

 The shirt was stained to begin with and was in an awkward place that I couldn't cover up.

 Luckily they weren't as noticeable from the outside

 There wasn't a button near the bottom and I didn't want this dress to fly open and allow the little girl to show some leg, so I just did a running stitch all the way up to the top which sealed off everything.

I love it! I really hope the girls love them as much as I do!

And on a final note, before I go and ask people if they'd like to do a guest post within the next few weeks, is anyone willing to step forward?
