Crafty Tuesday~ 4th of July T-shirt Re-purpose to a Pleated Dress

We had a GREAT 4th of July! It is a bit of a tradition for me to make something special for my Sugar Bear to wear to the 4th of July picnic. This year.....I was so pleased with the outcome.

Back in May, I ran across a fun Tutorial that turns a t-shirt into a fabulous pleated dress. I wanted to try it out....like NOW, so I did. We've been DYING for the 4th of July to get here so she could wear it.

I love re-using Sugar's clothing. This shirt had some stains on the belly, and the front said, "old navy". I just added some stars, and TA-DA....who would know?

Isn't the long tie in the back of the dress fun?

Sugar Bear loves this dress. It twirls FABULOUSLY, and she gets to tell everyone that "My mama made it!"

I'm not sure who gets a bigger kick out of it.....her or me. We both enjoy her one of a kind outfits. It makes her feel special, and it gives me a creative outlet.

Everytime I see one of your new outfits for Sugar I feel just awful...Olivia would be just like Sugar in her reaction, but I just never get around to it. I've only got a couple more years that she is going to wear homemade clothes so I'd better get a move on.

So cute! You are so very talented. I love that miss Sugar is so proud that her momma made her dress. It's sooo sweet when our kiddos are as proud of us as we are of them. :) Glad you had a happy fun filled 4th!
