I got these white tights from the dollar store.
Now it is getting WAY too hot to wear tights, not that I ever do,
but I like my daughter to wear them to church. But with it being so hot I feel bad, so I decided a refashion was in order!
Chopped of 5",
depending on the size of the person you are making them for you might need to chop of more.
This was for a 2T approximately.
This step isn't necessary, I just serged the ends of the tights.
Gathered my ruffles. I cut a piece about 5" then sewed a tube.
I didn't want raw edges, for this project.
Then sewed them on.
While sewing stretch the tights just a little bit, so that they can still stretch.
(sew near the edge of the tights, so no hem can be seen)
I stretch one leg more than the other.
Can you tell which one??
I know you can see her diaper, she didn't want to put something else on. Oh well!
This dress is a peasant dress as well. I have the pattern all scanned and ready to go, except
I didn't like the sleeve pattern, so I just made another one this morning. This is the result.
Do you want this pattern??
