upcycled dress for Abigail

I decided to try upcycling for the first time. 

WE had this t-shirt of abigails that the graphic was coming off. 

yuck- right?

so I cut off the top about 1 inch below the armpits

and made a tube of fabric using some remnants I picked up from hancocks. 


yay- french seam (I also used a decorative stitch along the bottom hem. )

I thought it needed more- So I grabbed some trim. 
+Christina Borrego Buck gave this to me a while ago and I found a good use for it here. 


Abigail modeling for me. 



because it was just a tube on a t-shirt that was a bit too big on her the back looks a little funny. not sure how to fix it- so  im going to leave it.

it looks like it's the start of a princess dress....she needs ruffles and lace.....

or maybe do a gathered thing across the center of the back....kinda like pleats maybe about 2 1/2 inches across right at the center seam. would that work?
