|Do you see that itty bitty Earmes-era chair? |
It ranks as my all-time favorite thrift-store find. $18.00 Huzzah.
*Ahem* not that there are any unfinished projects laying around my house!
I followed the Prudent Baby: Snappy Toddler Top tutorial. It's great for beginners, and there are awesome step-by-step pictures to help you out! Of course, being me, I made some modifications.
- I used some IKEA fabric, Susanna, multi-color stripe, to make the collar and add some trim at the bottom hemline. Actually, the body of the dress is made from an IKEA sheet I found in the 'discount' section. It's a great place to find cheap fabric.
- I added a few inches to the pattern to make it dress-length. I just found a dress that was the appropriate length and tagged a few inches to the bottom of the pattern. Viola! It's a dress.
- I forwent snappy closures because I had some vintage buttons that I wanted to use. Aaaand I don't have a snappy tool. Minor detail.
