Easy steps to re use outgrown dresses

Does your child have a favorite dress, a dress that she still wants to use but it is too short.

MiniMe has outgrown her favorite dress, one she got to wear for her 5th birthday party, a Sonia Rykiel dress that we bought in Nice.

Its been a while since she outgrew the dress, but it is still hanging in her closet. She takes it out once in a while, looks at it and sighs, she really has been wanting to use it again.

She found the black tulle I once bought for a different project and wondered if she could staple on some on the hem of the dress. Mini’s dream for the time being is to become a fashion designer and she sews and staple clothes for her teddy bears and dolls. I suggested to sew it on instead and while preparing I found myself making a simple patter for a skirt and made a petticoat she can use for dress-up, skirt extender etc.  Tulle skirts for children is very popular these days. As you can see below it is very simple pattern.

I made 4 layers, one silk and 3 tulle, sewed the skirts together at the waist and inserted a garter and decorated with a ribbon.

Just as countless of little girls, MiniMe loves to wear her mummys shoes.

She thought my shoes looked better with the skirt than her shoes does.

We are having a fun photo session this fall break.

 

Spring renewal

Vain, who me? Maybe just a little 🙂 My excuse is the 40 years crisis.

Spring is approaching and there is alot happening private and with the blog, so I need something to wearfor the different happenings. I sometimes roll  my eyes when my girls tell me that they need something new everytime they go out. I wonder who they got that from:)? Purple is supposed to be the color of the year and I love purple, but when I saw these items they had just come home with me. The colors gives me good vibes and gets me in a good mood.

The light bright orange down jacket is from a brand called  Dear Daharma  the scarf from, Beck Søndergaard

I got them at my favorite interior store, Lille Interiør.

The blouse and top is from Michael Kors and bouoght at my favorite store, Porto Bello i nMoss

I even got som arm candy  to highlight the outfits, from the brands Lea andTokyo Jane.

Da er jeg klar for diverse treff og besøk:)
