Upcycled Pumpkin Patch....

 Good evening,
Tonight I thought I'd share my {Miss 6's} new idea.
Anyone who knows me in real life, knows that I love Pumpkin Patch clothing {and have ALOT of it}.
Over the years I've spent so much money.... I really should be a share holder.
I've never sold any of my kids clothes etc on ebay, instead I store them and give them away to family and friends. 
Most of the old clothes goes to my brother in New Zealand.
Yesterday, Miss 6 was going through a bag of old clothes.
She came downstairs wearing this yellow dress. 
It's a size 4 Pumpkin Patch dress.
This yellow dress was one of her favourite 'going out' dresses and it still looks brand new. 
Miss 6 asked if I could change it into a top. 
Who cuts up a $40 Pumpkin Patch dress?
But, it made me think.... maybe it was a good idea.
I had a little play and thought it would make a cute skirt.
 It took less than 15 minutes to change it from a dress to a skirt.
 Miss 6 loves her new twirling skirt...
 Thanks for the great idea Miss 6....
 More Pumpkin Patch upcycles coming soon :)
My heart goes out to everyone in Christchurch, New Zealand.  This morning the city of Christchurch was hit by a devastating earthquake.  65 confirmed dead many more missing.
The images on Tv are shocking!
I don't have family living in Christchurch.... but I have a few friends living there, who are all ok.
Love Nikki xx
