I just can't stop...

Hi, my name is Mirja and I am a resale shop addict. 
 I am completely unable to drive past a resale shop without stopping in. 
I am completely unable to go into a resale shop without buying at least one t-shirt (usually it is at least 5).

I am completely obsessed with making kids clothes from recycled t-shirts. 
My beautiful niece, Marczella, with just a few of her dresses



The problem is that I now have more shirts now then I know what to do with!
These are shirts (over 100) that I came home with on one shopping trip alone!

I see a shirt and I just can't wait to make a funky dress for some totally rockin' little girl!
 

Some of my favorites are the ones that I have made for the sci-fi loving girls!

I sear I will stop buying shirts, some day...

One princess dress coming right up...

I am so happy with the results of this weeks challenge.  I hope Maddie loves it as much as I do!

I was able to successfully turn these...


 Into this...

With the addition of some purple organza and sparkly satin from my stash and some beaded trim at neckline and waist.

Next up is another princess dress for Maddie's little sister. 
We will be surprising them with their dresses for their Disney trip next weekend.
