Ribbit!!!







Here it is ladies and gents!! This was a skirt I picked up at a garage sale. I couldn't see an adult actually wearing it (although I had the idea of it as a uniform for a nurse working in a children's hospital.:) My niece likes frogs; she thinks her little brother is a bullfrog. When I told her I was going to make a dress for her out of this skirt she got excited! And here it is! The top is lined with the lining from the skirt, and I used bias tape for the ties. I put in a side zipper, hoping she'll be able to wear it longer. The only unfortunate thing is that it's all white. White fabric and little kids ... we'll see how long it stays white:):)
