Yesterday I went to the op shop and spent too much money on heaps of bargains. As I was almost at the counter I spotted a beautiful ladies white lace skirt and I had visions of making something just like this.
I only thought to take a before shot after I had already cut out some of the pieces. I still managed to get this shot which gives you an idea of what I started with.
I was so pleased with the results that I wanted to take some great pictures of my beautiful daughter wearing her beautiful new dress. Here are some of the shots.
I made some changes but used this New Look pattern as the basis for the dress.
I couldn't bare the idea of wasting any of this fabric so I decided to make my little baby a skirt to match. I just love matching outfits.
I decided to add a nappy cover under the skirt and I used this tutorial from Dana Made It and just added a little lace ruffle in case the skirt flies up.
Who needs Spotlight when you have a 50% off special at the Op Shop.
No offence Spotlight...I still love you.
But how could you possible go past these two gorgeous outfit for the grand total of $2.
