One of my recent refashion projects for Alyssa was her Christmas dress!!
Last year my sister got her this adorable tie dress from a craft fair. Last year it was way too big - this year it quickly became too short! She only got to wear it once this Summer!! But I love the fabric and since it has a lot of red in it I thought it would be pretty for Christmas. And I had a perfect white shirt to go with it.
So here is the before - the dress and the shirt.
Here is the after! I took the ties from the dress and made them into a ribbon bow for the front of the shirt. I gathered the material from the original dress to make the skirt.
I added a pretty Christmas sweater I had to it to complet the outfit!
This weekend we went and took Christmas pictures (my hubby happens to be a pretty awesome photographer! Doesn't do it professionally but he certainly could!!) Here is one of my favorites we got of Alyssa and it is a good model of her outfit!
(and you can't see from this picture but I love the length of this dress - hits her about mid calf! You just can't hardly find dresses that long for little girls right now!)
