Christmas Concert Dress

Rubes has her first Christmas Concert next week so a "new" outfit was in order for the special event. Here's what I came up with... at a cost of maybe 50 cents for thread. The red top came from my niece, Lauren. The white ruffles were from a thrift shop skirt refashion left over. The print fabric came from my late grandmother stash, once upon a time a shirt. Oh, I took the elastic for the waist band from a pair of lounge pants.

Had to dress-up the sweater with a lil' pin!

Rubes loves ruffles these days and I finally feel like I've got the hang of making them.

I'm very pleased with the way this all came together and how quickly as well. I'm thinking a few ruffly skirt may show up under the tree.

Misty you amaze me! I only wish I would have had your skills when my kids were young! I really could have used them at that time. Very adorable dress.
