Re-purpose Baby Dress

I was clearing out baby clothes the other week, to pass on to a good friend and came across this cute little summer dress by LadyBird, with it's shirred top, dainty frilling and in the softest, most divine lemon. ❤ 

Unfortunately, I noticed it had two pesky holes down near the bottom, and now, I couldn't really pass it onto anyone - even charities would just through it away.

Picture 1: Who wants a dress with holes in it? Picture 2: Size 0 Summer Dress with spaghetti straps already cut off

This is where re-purposing comes in very handy. You don't need to be an expert with a sewing machine, and bonus is, most of the hard work is already done! 

Baby dress, come toddler skirt - holes strategically covered with a multi-layered flower. Found this flower idea on 'Make It and Love It', god I love Ashley!

Step 1. Cut straps off dress. Wow, on second thought that's too hard, I give up.... [walks away] *note sarcasm

Step 2. Make cute flower by following this tutorial by Ashley at "Make It and Love It" 

Step 3. Marvel at own brilliance! (thanks to someone elses idea)
