Repurposed: Apron to Sundress

Go {HERE} to enter the giveaway for our vinyl featured on our numbered cubby system!  Tell cute Marni we sent you and said hello πŸ˜‰


Repurposed Apron:
We were hanging out in Kelli’s new kitchen recently, going through old aprons, and her cute 2 year old happened to walk by… Kell wrapped one around her and said, “Hey Kris, this would be a cute dress on Delaney.”  I nodded in agreement:


Supplies needed:
Tiered apron . Sewing machine . 2″ velcro . Coordinating thread . Scissors . Buttons x2
To make your own:
1. Snip off ties of aprons. 
{Note: These will be your dress straps}
2. Stitch up the ends of the apron.
3. Measure where you want the straps to be and…
4. Pin into place.
5. Take a break to play with your model 2-yr old πŸ™‚

6. Stitch the straps in place. 
{Note: We sewed our straps underneath the top layer of the apron and followed the stitching of the fabric to hide our stitching}
7. Snip off the excess apron ties.
8. Sew a 2″ velcro strip on each flap of the back of the dress to secure it.
9. Sew 2 buttons on the front.
Now just let your little dolly run wild in her new dress!
Happy Monday everyone!
It’s over 100*F here today… perfect for Laney to sport her new sundress πŸ˜‰
PS: We’ll be linking up {HERE} this week
