Kaitlyn's Dress

Thanks for the well-wishes as I head back to work.  I survived the first week and am looking forward to the work & people I'll meet.

I wanted to share a dress I made from my t-shirt stash, Kaitlyn's Dress.  This was a birthday gift for a special little friend.  Her family shares their old t-shirts with me, so I used a few of them in this outfit.

I started upcycling with t-shirts by using Lil Blue Boo's Hoodie and Sienna dress patterns.  My girls are now bigger than the patterns, so I've started drafting my own.  I really like the circle skirt on this one!  I also made matching shorts to wear underneath so she can play on the monkey-bars :)
Have you caught the upcycling bug yet?  My t-shirt stash is about as big as my woven fabrics!

I love it you did a great job. Will you be making a tut on it?

This is fabulous. VERY cute!

Upcycling is turning me into a fabric-o-holic. Is there a cure?

This is one of the cutest dresses I have ever seen. Great combination of "old" T-shirts. Nice job.
