Use Ladies Shirts as Girls Dresses

contest winner icon

This is a photo of my 2 granddaughters wearing their new "dresses." The girl on the left is almost 3 years old and the girl on the right is age 4. They both wear size 4 clothes. Their dresses are actually ladies shirts, size small, that I got brand new off the clearance rack in WalMart for $1 each! I didn't have to do any sewing for them to fit. They tie around the neck like a halter top and the waist has a string to gather it in (I actually gathered it tighter after the photo and it fit better). This style of shirt is a perfect dress for little girls!

I actually got the idea when I was at the Goodwill and found an adorable turquoise and white top (similar to these) that was a junior size 10, but had accidentally been put on the kids $1.99 rack. It has an elastic waist and fits both girls perfectly as a dress. As they grow taller, they can still wear them as shirts,with pants, if they stay in style. This has opened my eyes to a whole new possibility on clothes for my grandkids!

I don't see a photo either, but I promise I loaded one & it showed up in the preview. Will try again & see if it turns out, it's showing in the preview again.

Ok, so I posted it & am now editing it, the photo showed up, just like before. Maybe it got lost between the time I submitted it & Thriftyfun posted it?

Really neat idea. Adorable granddaughters too. They look as pleased as you are about their "new dresses".

Thank you for sharing.

Thumbs Up.
