T-Shirt revamp

While shopping today I found some cute outfits for my daughters. But I wanted to give them a little more umpf.
I started with this top. It is a girls xs which is a girls size 4/5. My youngest is in 18m/2t, but I loved the top. I figured with a little altering it'd make a cute dress.

So I sewed elastic onto both sides. The elastic bunched up the sides a bit and shortened the top.

I then used some ribbon and made a flower pin.

Since I was already playing with the ribbon I also made a couple hair clips to match.

I LOVE how it turned out! I can't wait to get her in it. But since it is after her bedtime I guess I'll have to wait LOL

I also got my oldest a basic black t-shirt.

I used Tulle and fabric to make a flower pin.

I love how it looks with her new skirt!

And again I made a matching hair clip ;)

Here are some blogs with some great flower tutorials!
