The Dreamsicle Duo


If I named our clothing then these dresses would be named the Dreamsicle Duo.

I thrifted the men's button down shirt for $1, then used Dana's tutorial on MADE for Chick's dress. Chick's has a button detail on the back, because I sewed it on there thinking I'd use it to run a sash through, but then opted to not have a sash & liked the button thing anyhow. I kept the dress very plain, so the button thingy adds a little interest.


Babe's dress, made from the bottom half of the sleeves, is based on another tutorial (that I saw, skimmed through, closed out of, & never was able to find again). I love the cuff details. And the slobber details...those adorn all of her clothes of late. Anyhow, Babe's has a pocket that I took from the front of the shirt (used for Chick's dress) & be-ruffled.

Chick's hair-tie is just some fabric sewn into a cord. Babe's headband is the band that was underneith the collar.


Both were really fun. I have a couple more $1 shirts that I'm going to play with, so stay tuned (but they're at the bottom of a rather lengthy list).
