Grey knit dress....

I was going to take the kids to the beach this arvo,
 to take photos of the girls in the summer outfits I made yesterday.... but it was too wet and cold :(

So, I went through my bag of throw away clothes and found a knit dress to upcycle...
 Before.....
 I cut away the white shirt.
Resized the dress and repositioned the straps.
I love knit dresses!
 Miss 8 loving the rain...
Looking at these photos of Miss 8 dancing in the rain made me think of this quote....
"Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass,
It's about dancing in the rain."
Happy weekend :)

Love Nikki xx

i think this is one of my MOST favorites of your upcycles! you are so very talented. btw, i found the foot pedal for my sewing machine and am so glad to have located it after almost a year of it missing. perhaps i'll discover some raw, hidden seamstress talents somewhere inside me that just need to be dusted off. ::hugs::
