Toddler skirt into shirt

I bought a bag full of lace today at Hobby Lobby - I love that store. Well, at least the clearance stuff there ;) It had a bunch of odds and ends pieces. One particular piece was one I realized would be perfect straps for a skirt of hers I couldn't bear to give away and wanted to make into a shirt.

Ten minutes of hand stitching the straps on and I was done!

The Lace: I love!


The skirt: before


The tunic after:


Have a great Friday everyone!

  2. It makes an adorable top! Great idea to extend the wearing time of a skirt. I'm visiting with sugar bee, I hope you visit me too.

  3. ooo- now I know what to do with those 3 skirts I couldnt bear to give away!

    THANKS- love that with the handstitching, easy to pull straps off later and go back to being a skirt to pass onto someone else!
