From tank top to 2 dresses

My daughter and I found this women's tank top on clearance and she decided she wanted it. 
It was quite long so I got it and decided I would make a dress for her out of it. At first I just altered the straps so that it would fit her but it was actually still pretty long. I ended up cutting the top off and taking some coordinating material from a shirt to make straps. This is the result.

Then, I used the top part that I cut off and one of my old tee shirts to make another dress.
I decided to add a ruffle to the bottom and a little flower. I may have put the flower too far over though. I am thinking about adding some more flowers to balance it out a little. But here is how it looks so far.

I'm back

So I have been on a little (okay a long) hiatus. And here is why.
My newest addition was born June 15 at 10:25pm. He weighed 8 pounds 14 ounces and was 21 inches long! It is hard to believe he is 2 months old already. Kid #1 started Kindergarten. Kid #2 will be starting preschool in a few weeks. Needless to say, I haven't had a lot of time for crafts. But I have finished a few projects so I am back to share. Stay tuned.....

Meanwhile, here are some more pictures of Kid #3.
