I posted a few days ago about using an old bridesmaids dress to make a couple of little dresses for my daughters. I finally finished the jumper that I made for my older daughter. She seems to be a bit in between sizes depending on the brand/style of clothes so it's a bit big on her yet, but here's the picture of her wearing the finished project. (She will wear white tights and a white shirt under it when she is actually wearing it, but I couldn't get her to try on the whole outfit today so she just slipped off her other dress and put this on.)

Sorry I can't figure out how to post a picture.

That's really cute! It will look even cuter w/the white tights and shirt.

Great job of repurposing something!

Hope this isn't too large. I'm not sure how to link it instead of post it here.
