Some playclothes I made

I thought I might share a few more things I made for the girls today. Above is a simple a-line skirt made from a 60's fabric I bought at the Rose Bowl for two dollars a yard. The skirt is really simple.You can make your pattern right on the fabric.It's also cut on the bias.i will share the directions in an upcoming post.
Here we have a Gigi modeling an incredibly chic and slimming polka dot maxi dress with a flirty ruffle on the hem! The halter neckline is incredibly flattering, don't you think? Tres chic Gigi!
On the left is a simple t-shirt dress made with a t-shirt from the thrift shop with an attached skirt made from the width of 3/4 yard of fabric. I just sewed the panel with one seam in the back , gathered the skirt and sewed it onto the t-shirt. I added trim and an applique from the remnant. On the right is a sweet little pullover dress made from a Modkid pattern called Frida.
