So I decided to make one for my niece Helaena instead.
For this project, I used an old shirt from Andrea's hand-me-down pile (she has 2 older cousins who gives her clothes they have outgrown... perfect for refashioning projects!) and one of my old white shirts (for the ruffles and flowers).
Helaena is a year older than Andrea so I chose a shirt that was still a little big for Andrea. I had this shirt from Tea Rose Home in mind while I was working. But apparently, my memory is not serving me too well lately, my finished product ended up a little different. I guess it happens (a lot! to me!!!).
I had Andrea model the shirt for me.
|It looks like a mini-dress on her!|
After our little photoshoot... I got a call from my mom. She took Helaena to the doctor for a check-up for her cough and fever and was told that they have to admit her because she has bronchitis already and was dehydrated :( She sent me this picture of Helaena when they got to their hospital room. This was before she learned she will be hooked (i.e. jabbed with a needle... OUCH) to an IV.

Anyway, my husband and I visited her at the hospital last night and I was able to give her the 'new' shirt. I hope you get well soon pretty girl!
