I haven't made a dress for Claire in quite awhile. She has many in her closet that are supposedly her size, we try them on every few weeks but they are still too big and by the time they do fit her, they are too short.
I found this ladies' shirt at Savers for $5 and had a vision for it so I decided it was worth it. I was elated when I went to check out and was told that since I had my Savers Club Card, my entire purchase was 50% off. Woot!
I removed the bottom layer as it was way too long anyway. I used that fabric for the straps and hair bow. Of course I had to take in the sides as well.
