Toddler Ruffle Skirt from Upcycled T-Shirt

This sweet little project took less than one hour to complete!

I made the skirt from a beloved Old Navy long-sleeved tee that had a hole in it (but was still in my closet for some reason).

Isn't it precious on Ella, paired with the little white peasant blouse?

Here it is with a plain white tee.

And a close up of the imperfectly-sewn but still perfectly adorable ruffles.

You can find the tutorial here. Thanks Sew Much Ado! I can cross off one of the tutes to try in August from my list!

  3. Thanks Vix--I am so pleased with how it turned out!

    Welcome Linds! She is a cutie patootie, although quite squirmy, so getting the right photo can be a challenge.

    Thanks Brandy!
