Dubble Bubble Dress

OK, how sassy is Miss Mia in this picture? I made this dress today out of a Dubble Bubble t-shirt from Walmart and a few others from Old Navy that were on clearance. Because I used a size 4/5T shirt, I wasn't able to use my Sienna Dress pattern , so I kind of just winged it! It's more slender than the Sienna Dress, and I cut the neckline off and trimmed the sleeves to give them a raw edge as well. I didn't try the double bubble shirt on her before buying it, or making the dress, so I didn't realize it was such a slender fit. It obviously runs smaller than her other shirts, but I still like the way it came out, and she LOVES it! I still plan on using my Sienna pattern, but I've got to wait and use it when I use grown up t-shirts I guess. I'll continue to post them as I make them. It's fun to have them all turn out different :)
