sweet idea

Have you heard of Made? Here is my favorite project from this blog. She took a men's shirt and converted it into a dress for a little girl. Clever?... yes... the best part is it was a dads shirt made for his daughter. Such a cute concept. I'm for sure doing this one!

liko totally did this and it turned out so precious! such a fun idea!

this one's way cuter than mine, though (i saw it on her blog, too). and i like this concept for the sleeves much better!!

maybe the next one i make will be up to par! haha!!

I love MADE. one of my favorite blogs. I've been waiting for sa to give up some of his work shirts so I can give it a try. Anyone have any good advice on shirring? I'm afraid to try it!

go get some elastic thread, thread it onto your bobbin only, and sew away!! it's fast and sooo easy, you'll amaze yourself!

of course, that's probably the cheating way, but i don't know how to do the real smocking.
