I came across several really nice men's dress shirts - some from very high-end stores! They had all their buttons and the cuffs and collars were in perfect conditions. And though it pained me to do so, I checked for any gross pit-stains! It's rare that an arm pit seam would be used in a child's garment, but it just gives you a yucky feeling to buy something with pit-stains!
Here are some of the colors/patterns I found:
I started by chopping off the collar and arms. I sewed a seam down each side, giving the dress an a-shape. Then I grabbed a coordinating fabric and made a quick, lined bodice. A pinch and gather later, a cute little dress was born!
But it still wasn't bunnified. A few tiny white rabbit buttons fit the bill.
And she LOVES it!
Can't wait to do the rest of the shirts too! Stay tuned!
