This is not the greatest picture of Emersyn, but I love it because she is showing me her pretty pink nails. She has been showing them off for a couple of days now--she is pretty proud. The picture also gives you a great view of my pantry--yep--not clean:) Anyway....yesterday I spent a little time with my sewing machine. It has not gotten a lot of attention lately so I cranked it up and did a little re-fashion.
I bought this shirt last year because it was kind of like a shirt that I already had. There was only ONE big problem....it was not really at all like the shirt that I loved. So I wore it once and hated it and let it sit around and keep the cute shirt company for a while and then decided to give it a new life.
I liked the shape of this dress that Em already has and so I cut out a similar shape and gave it a try. It really did not turn out like this dress at all, but that was the beginning plan....sometimes things change:)
Em liked it, but was NOT interested in having her picture taken.
Like REALLY DID NOT WANT HER PICTURE TAKEN!!!
I like that it is more of a shirt than a dress. I should have made it a little wider because without the elastic waist of the example dress, it is not OVER big. I guess it will fit her for a while and then maybe it will fit as a dress and then a shirt for another cute little Perkins---SOMEDAY!!
