{Repurpose} Baby Dress

It is spring and in this household, it means that I go through everything and donate as much as I can.  It tends to be a hard process because I always end up going through the bags again and see what I can keep or repurpose.

This shirt has some history.  It was my sister's, which she purchased at my alma mater, San Diego State University.  She then gave it to me and I wore it for our rehearsal dinner the night before our wedding.  I just couldn't donate it, and after LB it doesn't fit anymore.  So I decided to make it into a dress for LB.  It was my first time to make something without a pattern.  I intended to make a 6 month dress, but I think it turned into a 12 month dress instead.  Here's the final result, what do you think?
