Lil' Dickies Girl


It's finally here!  This was the 2nd thing I made once I realized I could sew.  I LOVED this Dickies shirt I have had forever but it had a hole it so I couldn't wear it anymore.  After making Zeke's shirt I decided I'd use this for a shirt for Grace...and then I decided why not add a skirt and make it a "dress"?  Again I started with Dana's 90 Minute shirt tutorial and then just added some strips of different materials for the skirt.


I used one of the sleeves of the shirt for the back bottom of the ruffle...


Seriously, it doesn't get much cuter than that does it?!?!

OH MY HEAVENS!! That is too cute!

And I totally knew we were kindred spirits, but this cinches it. I mean, come on- a Dickies shirt? Awesome, pure awesome.

That is so cute (and so is the model). You are inspiring me to give this a try.
