mini maxi dress

Last weekend, Anne was playing dress up in my closet and started putting on this skirt and pretending it was a dress.  I decided it might be really cute as a little maxi dress for her.  
It only took about 30 minutes from start to finish.
If you want to make one for your little one, here's how I did it.
1. put skirt around chest and pin where desired.
2. pin and sew from top to bottom along that measurement.
3. cut away excess fabric
4. use excess fabric to make two straps
5. sew straps to dress (I liked the crisscrossed look)
...and there you have it! 
Anne just loved it and was so proud telling everyone her mama made it for her.  It made me feel a little guilty that I don't make things for her more often...hopefully there will be more time for that this summer!
