I found this adorable little dress and just about died.
So cute but at $42 ( and that's after taking 50% off!) It just wouldn't work with our budget.
So I did what anyone would do... I knocked it off!
And the end result makes me positively giddy.
It took me about an hour to make and I just happened to have the fabric sitting on my shelf... a remnant from Hobby Lobby that I bought just because it was so cheap!
So what do you think...
How did I do it?
It's so easy you'll laugh.
Step 1: Make a basic skirt.
I made an elastic waist skirt but you can shirr it or even make it a drawstring!
Step 2: Attach the tie at the front of the skirt.
I made the tie by sewing a tube of the leftover fabric but you could use ribbon too!
Step 3: Make & attach your fabric rose.
I made my rose by ruffling on side of a tube of fabric and then just twisted it together but there are a ton of ways to make them! Or use a button or some other embellishment or nothing at all!
