Refasoined Christmas dress

I am so ready for Christmas right now so I thought I would start out by making Sweet pea her Christmas dress. I had bought me a dress a few years ago on sale but never wore it and in the last two years a gained a bit of wieght so it wouldn't fit anymore. Sorry no pictures of it. I have been thinking of a way to make it into a dress for my baby girl for about month now, so Friday I just dove into it. I took my seam ripper and took the zipper out and reused it for her dress. I did have to take some fabric out of my stash for the slip but every thing else came from my old dress on her new dress. I am very happy with the way it turned out.
I just love the big bow in the back of her dress and the ties go all the way down the to the bottom of the dress.

Here is the jacket that I made to go with it, it was an old shirt of my husband's that he wore only one time for pictures for Christmas. It is very soft, sued black. I am very happy how it turned out! Now all I have to do is buy her a black headband to go with it.
