Re purpose a baby dress from your dollar store
For today's post I wanted to show you the dress I made by re purposing a baby dress from my local Dollar Store.
This dress was $1.25 (though the ones I got last year at the 99cent store in CA were a better deal). Now I created tie straps on my dress by cutting the straps in half but it is up to you. I find it easier to get on and off the doll this way.
Put your dress on your doll inside out and pin as shown, you can pin closer to your dolls body then I did.
With only two straight lines of sewing on my machine I was able to create this summer dress for my doll in under 2 minutes.
here for the link) on to some vintage blue lace seam binding I got at a yard sale. I just threaded the lace through slider and slid it into the middle then placed it on my doll and tied a big bow in the back
I hope you will look and see what you can find at your local dollar stores and create for your own dolls.
As with all my posts I would love to hear from you so please leave me a comment here or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
