Re-fashion: Three Posey Playdress


It's hard to believe that it's been a year since I made my first tee-shirt dress! We got a bunch of wonderful hand-me-downs at Christmas, so it was time to make a few more.

I loved wearing dresses when I was little - just ask my Mom! I think the best time to teach modesty and femininity is during these early years, so it's fun to have an easy way to add dresses into Alaina's everyday wardrobe.

These are so easy, inexpensive and fun to make that they are perfect to play in! I think it's important for a little girl to have some dresses she doesn't have to worry about getting dirty, and these fit the bill. Just add stockings, leggings or shorts for modesty and you're good for anything from tea parties to cartwheels.

I'll try to get some pictures this week and post her "Little Teapot" dress soon. It's the same concept with a totally different look. Oh yes, and the total cost on this one?

That is really neat, Gretchen!! And you would never guess it to be made out of just a sweater! I love the face in the fifth picture ;) I'll have to start seeing if I can do something like that with stuff from the thrift store, etc :)
