A New Dress for Lily-Ann

As a crafty type, and an environmentalist, I really enjoy working with repurposed items.  So, when I found a tattered old peasant style dress in a bin of things on their way out of my parents house, I grabbed it.  The dress was a size small ladies, in a really unattractive cut.  LOL  But the fabric was a beautiful cotton, wearing through in places, but still lovely.  I couldn’t resist turning it into something new and lovely for the wee girlie.  So here she is…  spinning and LOVING her new “princess dress”.  😀

  1. I love the action! She looks like she’s having a blast in her new dress!

    • She was so disappointed the next day when she couldn’t wear it again, which is why I had to sew the scraps to make her a play outfit. LOL So yep. 🙂 She definitely had a blast in it.

  2. Great action shots! Reminds me of my granddaughter, full of beans and action – always action.
