his nerdy man's shirt was reborn as an A-line, puff sleeved, be-ruffled dress for Noelle. The basic idea was from made, but with a few changes. I used the hem of the old sleeves and created a channel in the middle of the 1-inch hem to create a ruffly edge to the puff sleeve. For the ruffle I sewed three ironed strips of fabric together, hemmed the edges, gathered the ruffle and sewed it on the placket after removing the buttons. I was originally going to do big buttons but couldn't find enough matching ones in my stash. hee hee.


  1. Oh my gosh, your skill never ceases to amaze me. I love love this dress on Noelle. Everything about these pictures, including that band-aid on her toe, makes my heart swell. :*)
