dad's madras plaid - not any more
I took another shirt out of dad's closet (this one was on it's way to Goodwill) to make it in to a dress for Mallory. I have fallen in love with this one. I think one of the reasons I like it so much is because I remember him wearing it in the summer and now to see her wearing it is really sweet. I took some photos of the process which I will share in the next few days. I promise, it's simple. I got the great idea for the red and white polka dot waist band from dana at made. I love red and white polka dots and this added a nice feminine touch. This time I put the buttons in the back and I kept turning it around wishing they were in the front, but in the end after I added the red band, I liked them in the back.
