A month or so ago, my boss gave me the day off.
Meaning: hubby told me to get the heck out of the house and spend an entire Saturday by MYSELF! Of course, that meant coffee and shopping!!
In the Gap, I found this cute bright pink flower tank in the girls clearance section. 40% off of $2.99. Um, how could I leave it there?! Even though it's still too big for Raina as a shirt, I knew I could make it into a dress easily.
I cut a hugely long piece of fabric, probably 5 times the length of the shirt bottom. I wanted it to be extra twirly. This fabric was from the clearance section at JoAnn's, and has been in my stash for a while now. I love that it is SO bright and cheery. It goes perfectly with the big bright flowers on the tank. I ruffled it, sewed it on, hemmed it... and threw my hands up in victory.
Huzzah! A twirly whirly dress, all from clearance goodies!
