old curtains to cute dress...come peek

I haven't posted on here in a L.o..n.g time. lol Here are a few dresses that I made for my daughter this week.


The Front:

The back


Her Rainbow dress: She loves this one!




Took these old lady curtain I made originally and.......




.......cut it up and turned it into a twirly dress for my dd.
I think it is just the right tough for the brown scraps I had. The entire dress was made from scraps and a too small shirt and old pair of blue jeans she already had.




I made a felt flower bow too (see it on the pocket of the pants in the NON-action pic?)





I haven't added to this thread in forever....I look back at these pics of my dd below and can't believe how much she's changed in a year! Wowzer!



...Another dress I made today. I personally am not a fan of the fabric, but hey it was free from Grandma. All made/designed in my head. I wish I would have made it curve out more at the bottom, but ...oh well.







Here's my newest finished outfit for dd. It's an A-line peasant dress recycled out of a vintage, embroidered pillow case that I picked up from the thrift store. I love the knitted embroidary on the bottom. I tried to take some pics where you could get a glimse of it. I think this is my favorite dress so far.





I was bored tonight, so I decided to make dd (2yo)a new dress out of some old, yellow, curtains. I used this pattern kinda. Didn't have a printer, so I just eyeballed it. I haven't tried it on her bc she's sleeping, but I think it turned out so cute. I put a pocket on it too bc she LOVES pockets to put her money in (like big brothers). It was very easy. Watcha think?

Picture tuned out dark. The yellow is a sunshine yellow.


Action shots!


Back view


Made a peasant top with twirl skirt. This is the only pic I could get of her. I love the top. Planning on making a bunch!

I'm working on a peasant style A-line dress right now. I also have a patchwork twirl dress almost finished! I'll post pics when done.
