Turn two old shirts into Vintage Beauty!!!

A couple weeks ago, I finally, decided to do a closet clean out.  You know all those shirts that you have from high school or collage that never look right when you get them on??? Come on, everyone has them.  They are the ones that stay in your closet collecting dust and taking up space. After filling a bag for shoes, a bag for purses, and a bag for clothing,  I just didn't have the heart to get let go of the bag of clothing.  All of that beautiful material :(:(:(:( <--- me weeping.  I decided to hold on to the bag for a while.  Friday, I finally pulled out two shirts from the donation sack, cut them all up and made Bella a new dress complete with plenty of frill and hair flower that matches.  Please do tell me what you think. Feedback is always a good thing:)

 Be sure to click on the image to see the frilly parts up close:)

 I also decided to make a flower for her hair that matches:)

Ladies and gents... who says you can't give old shirts a face lift???



PS: To all out there who are following me... I just want to say, from the bottom of my heart, thanks! Even though I only have a couple of people coming by to see what's stichen, I am so grateful. It's really fun to share projects and get connected with others, I hope you feel the same:)

PSS My baby started crawling today:):):):):0:0:0:0:0

Oh it looks so cute! I can't believe the things you're making. You're so talented. This one looks like you could buy it at a boutique or something.
And congrats on Bella crawling. You might need to figure out a way to get eyes in the back of your head now :)
