Naartjie inspired Crap to Craft!

We are slowly sifting through clothes and making piles for a future Garage Sale. I came upon this shirt which is a size 14. Our oldest is 7, so it would be a LONG time before this shirt would have fit.... but I love me some owls and couldn't bring myself to toss it out.
Being the huge fan of Naartjie kids clothes that I am, I took a closer look at this shirt and figured I could save it, mix it up and turn it into a comfy Fall dress and leggings for my 3 year old.

I started with the leggings, I cut the thermal fabric sleeves off of the shirt and sewed them onto a pair of size 4 panties.

For the dress, I turned the shirt inside-out and took everything in about an inch and a half. Neck (on both sides), sleeves (I also pleated these), and sides. And for more of a fitted look I put a pleat in the back of the dress also. Dress-Finished!!

All in all this project took about 45 minutes.
