We found a couple of great things, one being this tank top I couldn't leave behind:
To little for Elizabeth, to big for Isabelle...
Don't you just love the way she's being so modest?
I decided to turn it into a little dress for her.
First, I cut the straps at the half-way mark.
Serged them up, so they don't ravel when I wash it.
Took in the sides a little with my serger. Just cut off the old seam, and made a new one.
Tied up the straps at her shoulder, and bingo! a new dress for summer. It does not look it in the photo, but is seems a little short on her, but I thought a little pair of brown capri leggings would look really cute with it.
Two bucks and five minutes? My kind of up-cycle!
