Girls Dresses

My friend Jennie posted about some sewing goals she had for the new year. I decided to take her lead and start some projects of my own. On of her projects was making a little girls dress from a mens shirt. I went to good will and got 2 shirts for $5 each. I used the link jennie provided for the Red dress but i wasnt rally satisfied so i hunted around for a different one. the turtorial found HERE is what i used for the green dress.
This is what i started with.

My finished product

Eleanor wore hers to church today. I am going to alter grace's a little bit and then she can wear hers too.
