Man's shirt to strapless halter

Jumper to Girls party dress

I have been doing a few refashions lately, but this is the only one I have managed to grab photos of so far.

Before: This pink jumper has seen me through quite a few winters, but was coming up on the short side.

So I cut off the sleeves and used them to make some ruffles on the bottom of the dress.  Rather than just cut straight across the shoulders to allow for the smaller neckline, I angled down from the original shoulders so that I could get the ruffled sleeve effect. The fabric flower was made out of some of the scraps.  


After: Now Little Miss has a cute dress for her birthday party season :-)
