This dress is so sweet! Love the vintage vibes!

Very creative, love it! xx

I would make this without the top ruffles, that part doesn't look right. I wouldn't use a yellow belt either. It is a cute dress to make from a shirt other than that.

that is cute

I am just amazed at how crafty people are! You could even use a couple of shirts (coordinating fabric patterns) and piece one together. I'm so looking forward to getting started on my spring/summer wardrobe!

Its real cute .I just might have to try making it. Thanks Laura
