Frugal dressmaking

I picked this dress up this morning in a charity shop. It's pretty horrible and outdated but I loved the fabric. I knew two little girls who would agree with me too.

So I snapped it up for £3, giggling at the funny looks the shop assistant gave me. Once we got home I busted out the seam ripper and took it apart carefully.

A free printable pattern and some sewing later.... I had a little sparkly dress for DD1. All I need to do is add the buttons to the back tomorrow.
Then I can start work on DD2's dress with the rest of fabric.
