But before I started either of those, I needed to make Part Two of a gift: a dress for the birthday girl.
I saw this tutorial for a child’s dropped waist t-shirt dress and knew I could make something very pink and princessy with that idea.
I used this free pattern for a child’s t-shirt and about a quarter of a metre of the pink micro jersey, leaving plenty for my Renfrew.
The gathered skirt is made with an old curtain, lined with an old sheet. Vintage, baby. I attached it to the t-shirt and the dress was done. Aside from the top stitching on the shirt, the entire dress is sewn on my serger.
I suspect it will be a bit on the big side, but that will give her many years of princessy pleasure.
It’s time to party, Princess!
Cost of this Thing: €9 (micro jersey & pink thread for the serger — enough for several Things)
Cost of all Things to date: €100.61
