Yesterday, following a link on this fun and fabulous new blog, I made a half-dozen little dresses for Abby in the course of about two hours. It is a great way to use up t-shirts that have gotten a bit too short, or are otherwise on the way out, and you only need about 1/4 yard of fabric to make the skirt. Seriously, anyone with ANY ability to sew a strait line on a machine CAN make these. Yes, even you, Wiz! (directions below the fold)
They are so awesome, in fact, that Beanie had to have one when he saw Abby’s. That’s really no surprise to our regular MMW readers- he was insistet on choosing a blue fabric for his skirt, so it would be “good for a boy, mama”. Uh, ok, son! He even slept in it last night- and wants to wear it Visiting Teaching with me this morning. We’re working on that…
Have some cheap fun, mamas! Recycle and reuse stuff you have on hand! And thanks again, Carrie at This Mama Makes Stuff.
