Toddler Dress From Blouse

Yesterday, I had the idea to make a little shirt dress for my granddaughter from a women's blouse that I picked up the other day for 75¢.  It's made from a cotton/lycra blend so it should be comfy and stretchy.  I trimmed it with vintage bias tape trim that I bought for 49¢ at Goodwill.  And, when I say vintage, I mean vintage...it originally sold for 8¢!  It was a little tricky on some parts, but all in all I really like the way it turned out.  

So, here's the blouse....


This was the package of bias tape...


And here's the final project...

  2. Great idea to add the contrast trim to the collar, sleeves and pockets. A fabulous refashion.
