This was one of my favorite of Rachel's dresses. It is size 3T and now she is 4 years old. She is small for her age, so, it was perfect for a while. The other day I noticed that the upper part of the dress was too tight on her... so sad...
Also, she drew on the dress with marker and it didn't come off, I can't give it away or sell the dress either. At least, she was considerate enough to use matching colored marker so it kind of blends in.
The bottom part of the dress had planty of fabric, so I decided to make it into a skirt.
1. Cut off the top portion.
2. Straighten the edges.
3. Fold the edge twice and iron.
4. Leaving a 1" or so opening for elastic, sew the top.
5. Measure your little girl's tummy and cut the elastic, and thread through. Sew the ends of the elastic. Sew the opening closed.
That's it! Less than 20 min, she had a skirt. She can probably wear this for another year or two and I am really happy about that.
