Before and After

I found these knit dresses at Old Navy for $1.50. I bought the biggest sizes they had. So here is my latest recycle:
I do feel a little sad that someone had to sew the dress that I cut up.

I used the tutorial on ruffles and stuff for her jersey skirt and then just added a little rose. I kept the pockets from the original dress as an added bonus (with no added work!)

By the way: would someone please explain to me in exhausting detail (and small words) how to make a link from my blog (in the text) to another. Thanks Alyssa!

My sister's old pants she probably never wore but threw in the DI box.

Wah-lah! A little gift for my cousin who was married in December.

1- go to the site you want to be linked.
2- copy the url
3- go back to your unpublished post
4- highlight the word(s) you want to be the link
5- click the "link" button -it looks like a green world/circle thing with a paper clip over it...
6- paste the url you copied into the space provided.
7- click "ok"

voila! you have now made a link inside of a post. :)

step 1/2- write your post before you do anything, but don't publish it yet

I LOVE YOU! Thank you, Alyssa!

You are AMAZING!!!! Good work Meg! I love them all. Is that top one for you or Lilly? Love it!

Brooke: the top one is for my friend's daughter, who is five. It is a child-size dress form so it is kind of hard to tell from the picture. I think it is going to come down to the floor on her, though!

OK miss re-fashionista! I think I just don't have an "eye" for it I have such a hard time looking at something and imagining something else. It's a gift I tell you.

I just stumbled on your site and just love these! Speaking of linking - I was excited to find this as it fits perfectly in my features at my new blog, "Faith, Hope & Laundry!"

Check it out...

Keep creating and is good. :)
