My Latest Creation:::

My husband wanted me to turn his jeans into some shorts, so I had some left over jean fabric. My husband wears those baggy Southpole pants so it’s a pretty wide leg. I decided to use one of the legs to make either a baby skirt or dress and this is what I came up with.

I seriously need a dress-form. I looked online and WOW they are expensive!! I’m thinking of making one out of that water-activated packing tape. But I need one for a child too…

All I did was cut off the bottom and top. I pleated the front and added red to the top and some lace. I added the frilly straps as well… Hem up the bottom and Voilà! Only, we’ll see if this actually fits my future niece.

Oh, and I added this pocket…
