Dress Shirt to Dress!

DH has a pile of discarded dress shirts that I just can't seem to let go (look at all that wonderful fabric!!!).

Since Sweet Pea is always after more dresses, I thought a quick dress might work. This blog post inspired me to try something cute.

I followed the tutorial, but left the button band functional (rather than sewing it closed with the waistband).  Next time I might make the waist a bit higher, as it's a bit 'drop waist' right now.  The pink is leftover from her quilt backing several years ago.

But she's seen me embroidery and really, really wanted flowers.  And I can always use some practice with French knots, right?
