This was the result. I also put a couple extra inches on the bottom because this shirt was getting a bit small. If I do it again I will use regular cotton instead of knit to see if it will fray more and give a more ruffled effect. I made one for the older three girls but this one was the most involed. They loved to wear them for easter and I made good used of old stained white shirts!

Emma had a long sleeve shirt that had stains on the sleeves so I used the rotary cutter to zip off the sleeves. I put a little elastic in the short arm holes to give them a little ruffe edge. I removed the tall collar and the buttons. I edged the collar with purple knit and put on 2 egg shapes that were different colors. The first I stitched striaght on the second I stitched in lines straight across then used the scissors to cut in between.

So Ruby found a size 7 shirt she insisted on wearing so I made it into a dress for her, it was slim enough so it didnt need much.
I added elastic to the inside of the back to slim up the waist.
I then cut off the bottom of another adult sized
I then pinned it and straight stiched it.

Well definitely not my best work but from a distance it looks ok. I made it this last weekend before the ruffle dress. I sewed one of my t-shirts on the bottom of hers and added ruffles from a couple other shirts and a crazy looking flower. I learned a lot.
