From T-Shirt to Sundress.

Last night I sewed one of my old T-shirts into a sundress for my girl, using this awesome Prudent Baby tutorial.  I was worried that my Lucia wouldn’t go for the sushi (no pink, glitter, tulle, princesses? The horror!).  But she did! Yay!

I started with this interesting T-shirt that I used to wear prior to carrying and birthing childern:

And turned it into this:

Perfect for summer play:

And dancing:

And twirling:

Hooray for repurposing, and summer, and sundresses!
