My daughter finally started at her new preschool after our move. It took me a few weeks to research and decide on a school, and boy was she bored at home with me while brother has been at school!
So this week her big day finally came.
I decided to make her a special outfit with these fall-ish fabrics from Joann’s. Isn’t the one with the apples cute?
Remember when I made 10 rainbow colored tulle tutus for her rainbow themed birthday?
I used the same method but just used fabric instead of tulle. It’s very very easy. Just cut a piece of one inch elastic big enough for your child and sew the ends together. Then cut up your fabric strips to desired length and width. Mine were about 2 or 3 inches wide. Tie your strips with a loop to the elastic.
I think these tutus look so cute over shorts or leggings!
I made a couple fabric flowers with the extra scraps and pinned one to the skirt, and used one in her hair.
I took a plain tank top and hand sewed a simple ruffle down the front.
The ruffle is super easy to sew..Just take a strip of fabric and sew down the middle and pull your fabric down to make the ruffle.
Here’s her official back to school 2012 pic!
I have to point out the New Gap Mary Jane’s I found at Goodwill last year, $4.00!!..Yay..whoot whoot!
