Little GirlsTank Top Dress


I have been doing really good with my Wardrobe Refashion challenge! Whenever I get the urge to go shopping I hit the thrift store and see what I can find. During my most recent shopping spree at the thrift store I found these 2 tank tops. I had every intention of keeping the blue one for myself to wear as is but sadly enough it did not fit. All was not lost because I realized that it matched the orange tank top that I had bought for my youngest and I began to come up with a plan. I took the two thank tops and made one adorable dress!


I would love to post instructions or a tutorial on how to make this dress but I have no idea where to even start. I can tell you I used the top of the orange shirt and the bottom of the blue shirt, a thick piece of elastic and a LOT of thread. This dress was very much hit and miss and I spent way more time on it than I should have. In the end the time was worth and it turned out super cute. Now I just have to figure out how to make another one for my older daughter!

I just love clothing refashions. I can't look at them and see the possibilities.
