Outfit #4

This denim dress is outfit #4. 
{Note to self... I should've ironed the dress before taking photos.}
 The dress is made from one of my old denim skirts. 
The denim material is soft and stretchy. I'm not sure what the material is, as I cut off the tag and now I can't find it.
Miss 6, modeling the skirt before turning it into a dress.
 I trimmed away some of the width and used the excess material to make some straps.
 I removed the two silver buttons and replaced them with these two peppermint green ones.
 Miss 6 loves it!
 We matched it up with a pumpkin patch cardigan.
 As all pumpkin patch shoppers know... pumpkin patch clothes come with a spare button on the label. 
 We have two of these cardigans, so I sewed the two spare buttons onto the dress.
 Friday evening.... woohoo!  Bring on the weekend :D
Love Nikki xx

These are great! I really need to fix my sewing machine. I have tons of clothes I could do this with.

Hi! I found you through Marissa's blog and I love what you're doing here. My daughter is big enough now to wear my clothes without any modifications which is quite scary, but this is a great idea. Your girls are beautiful and you are an amazing photographer as well.
