Day 3--Kids Clothing Week Challenge






I revisited those vintage sheets that I used for the vintage wrap dress that I made earlier.  I just love how bright it is and best of all it has my 2 favorite colors.....green and yellow.  I was inspired by a similar version of this dress from Wooden Soldier, but couldn't handle the price tag--a whopping $70 eeek!  My husband would have a heart attack if he found out that I spent that much on one dress--so I said to myself..."I can make that"  and so what resulted was that dress that Isabel is wearing and modeling for her to keep for herself :o)

Oh and in case you guys were wondering what a $70 dress looks like:


Mine was pretty close...I changed it a bit and I know that I have to add more ruffles next time and closer together, but I love this dress and it was a really fast and quick project.
