Blast from the Past Saturday

Every Saturday, I post a previous post, usually from about a year ago (although I might go back further if I feel like it). Enjoy!

This is such a cute and easy idea, I had to bring it up again. It's also super comfy and perfect for warmer weather. Plus, Aubriana was so little--I just want to pinch her cheeks and have her this size for one more day.

From May 13, 2009:
$1 Make-Over

First, I started out with this skirt. A $1 Saver's find. It's a girl sized, not exactly sure how big, but probably for a girl who is 9 or 10.

First, I took out the elastic. It was actually stitched to the casing, otherwise, you could just open up the casing in a 2" spot or so, pull it tighter and sew the elastic together, trim it and sew up your hole. Instead, I had to unpick the entire casing, sew it again, put the elastic through, sew the elastic to itself, then sew up my hole.

After that, I added straps, with a ribbon sewn the length of it. Then I sewed on a matching bow on the front and ta-da! a new dress. It's so cute; perfect for running around in this summer. She was not very cooperative about the pictures, so pardon my mess and the blurry, headache inducing 2nd shot.


  1. That's perfect!

    Your blog is really growing fast! Congrats.

  2. Somehow just because it was previously a skirt I keep seeing a skirt that is too big for her! haha Although it's actually pretty cute and a cool concept.


Thanks for stopping by! I love your comments and look forward to hearing from you.
