Forever 21 to Forever 5

I found this Forever 21 shirt in the local thrift shop and thought it might be a good one to try altering into a dress for Miss Kinder.

Before

After
It was super easy. I cut up the back of the shirt and took it in, measuring Miss Kinder and being sure not to skimp on pinning. I also cut the seams of the arms and took them in as well. The neck was easy to take in without too much trouble, by pulling the fabric in under the buttons on either side, since the buttons were big enough to cover up my work. 

Next time, I want to try one with long sleeves, so I can make the cute leg warmer like Amy Karol did over here on the inspirational angrychicken.

This is the cutest and BEST idea!!! You make is sound awfully easy....I am learning my way around a sewing machine, but it's a slow process for me. I'll have to try this!

I just learned how to use the sewing machine in the last month. This was really, really easy. I just folded it a lot to eyeball how it would look before pinning and then figured I'd see what happened. And, look, it worked! Give it a try and let me know how it comes out.
