I know that this may not be the most new idea, but I had to try it. I found this adorable idea here and had to try it, of course! I found these dish towels at the dollar store and in the dollar bin at Target. Gotta luv me some target!! So, anyway, I took two dish towels turned them right sides together and sewed up the sides to about 7 1/2 inches from the top. I then turned the top side over 1 inch to make a sleeve on each open end. Sorry, I'm not much on sewing lingo, but I do know how to use my machine, a little!
So, now you have two sleeves at the top of each towel. Turn your dress right side out and insert about a 30 inch piece of ribbon into each sleeve. Tie at the shoulders, and, viola! You have an adorable little dress for under 5 bucks and in under 30 minutes.
Here is a picture of lil sis with it on. She really liked it, but couldn't really walk around in it too well. It was a little long for her. I took about 4 inches off of the bottom of it and kind of tweaked it a little. She absolutely adores the changes and wore it to preschool on Friday.
I just added a ruffle made from 2 of the 4 inches that I removed and I also added a little flower. It is hard to see in the picture, here is one close up.
Not too shabby for $2?!?!?
I still have to tweak the purple one. I need to shorten it, and I need to figure out what to do about the back. It has a black cat on the bum and I think that really screams dish towel. Any ideas?!?!
