What materials did you use? old maternity shirt, thread

What are you most proud of? The necklace was a last minute addition. I knew the neckline needed something and had wanted a braided neckline. However, there wasn't enough fabric from the tshirt left to make the entire I adlibbed a necklace.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I wish I had folded the tshirt in half to cut out the dress pattern. The armholes were a bit wonkey and required me to recut them to get it right.

This is so cute and I love the idea of a necklace incorporated into the dress. What a lucky little girl Stella is!

Great idea. The colour is lovely and the necklace is a perfect touch. My girls would like this too.
