Making it last

A friend gave me some of her old clothes.  She was going to take them to the thrift store, but decided I might want to go through them first.

As always, I did.  One of the pieces was a cute little denim strapless dress with a tiered skirt, not something I could ever imagine wearing.  It had gotten a little worn and the denim, already lightweight, was beginning to show its age, so into the giveaway bag it went.

Thank you!

That little dress became all the items pictured here, and a bit more - I actually made the denim and striped jumper dress in two sizes, by request.

So one dress = 4 toddler dresses, parts of 3 denim and floral stuffed bears, and I believe there are still some scraps in the potholder pile.

Who says you can't do a lot with a little?
