I found a tutorial that I am totally smitten with! It shows how to make a sweet toddler dress out of an adult’s button-up shirt. Click here for the original tutorial. By the way, if you haven’t discovered craftster, check it out! Tons of tutorials and networking among crafty people like us! 🙂

I made this dress as a practice run. I had an old button shirt I wore during high school. I never liked it much, but couldn’t part with it either. I knew I’d be able to make something out of it someday! I never knew that the something I made would be so darn cute, though! I was saving an cool blue button shirt to make an even sweeter dress to match my daughter’s eyes, but while my back was turned, making this dress, my son got creative with his scissors and cut that shirt up!! Oh well, such is the life of a sewin’ mama!

 All together, I spent about an hour on this dress. Total cost: ZERO DOLLARS!
