So the maxi-dress is not totally practical for a toddler, but I must say it’s super cute and The Girly avoided any major falls/trips on the playground at church.
I picked out this top at the aforementioned clothing swap for me, initially thinking I didn’t like it, but then deciding I might be able to make it work for me. Well, that was a far-fetched thought. Not only was this button-front, lightweight, knit top with oddly colored striped not working, but it was pathetic. The colors that were odd for a grown woman, though, I decided would be quite fun on a two-year old. So I used the same idea that I did for re-fashioning a button-front, long-sleeved shirt and left the length so as not to break up the stripes. Added a hook at the back above the tie. And voilà!
