A couple of years ago I made this dress for my girls for our 4th of July celebration. This is a very quick and easy pattern to sew up...great for those moments when you are pressed for time or just looking for a basic sundress!
So this year one of my girls asked me to make her an outfit for this 4th of July, but she asked me last night! No problem. Thankfully I still had these dresses, but obviously they had well outgrown them. My husband had a fantastic idea! Instead of making the dresses again, I cut the bodice off and inserted a navy blue jersey band.
It really is a good idea to hang onto items of clothing, if you have the storage space, because you never know when a refashion opportunity will present itself. In a matter of 30 minutes, I was able to create an entirely new looking dress. My daughter says she likes this version even better than the original. She likes that it is soft and comfy around the tummy.
