I Told You...


...Beanie would be wearing versions of this recycled shirt dress all summer long.  

Before:

After.
  Not long enough to be a dress, but long enough for a cute shirt.  
Modifying the pattern to make it sleeveless was easier than I thought.  



Dress #2...I planned on making it shorter, but when she tried it on she insisted that I keep it long.  It's much more Princess-y this way.  I didn't love it long at first, but now I like it.  
{Since I planned on hemming it, the bottom is a little uneven...who cares right?}  

Sitting for one pretty pose and...  

now it's time to dance.
