This brown tunic is outfit #7.
This was one of my favourite top last year...
but it's got a few oil stains down the side so I stopped wearing it.
I cut it down to fit Miss 8 and sewed it back together.
Then I hand sewed the open area on the neckline.
Looks great with leggings....
The hair clip....
The hair clip is made from the excess material from the top and from the some lace scraps from Miss 8's wedding dress.
Last year Miss 8's class did a little play and she had to wear a wedding dress.
I went to an op shop looking for an old wedding dress but they cost too much.
So I found a lace cafe curtain for $6. All I had to do was thread some elastic and make a veil... took less than 10 minutes. She wore one of my strapless tops and wore the lace curtain over the top of her no sew tutu..... Miss 8 looked beautiful.
The next two photos were taken last year on the day of her school play.....
Anyway, I cut some of the lace, folded it etc and sewed on three pearl buttons.
If you have been inspired to go through your wardrobe and start making clothes for your children.... please email me some before and after photos (if you don't have a blog), or send me your link to your blog. I'm going to start featuring you clever ladies... so start creating!
