kids clothes wk :: day 7

UPDATED TO ADD: please refer to the NOV/DEC/JAN 2012 issue of Altered Couture magazine for my write-up where I shared how I turned this man's white dress shirt into a cute little dress embellished with ruffles; all the tools & materials needed, step-by-step instructions, as well as some helpful tips.
this time i repurposed a man's white dress shirt ($7 at a thrift store) into another sweet little dress ~ pattern from leila & ben

i added 3 ruffles down the front using some white sheer fabric (no raw edges exposed)

buttons in the back

to go with it i sewed a petticoat out of muslin with 3 ruffles on the bottom ~ raw edges everywhere... ideas on how to sew this look: here & here

that completes the kids clothes sewing challenge for me...

see you at the next post !
