Makeover Dress II

Again, few more makeovers after my first trial. The first one is Helen's one year old T-shirt and the skirt part of her frock, she used to wear at the age of three. Combined together as a frock. Just sewed together at the waist line.

I tried the raglan sleeve top for the first time. The material is from my old nighty. First trial. But turned out well, I think. My friend Maya acted as a  bulldozer force behind this creation.  The pattern idea is from this PDF file.

Again a cotton shirt of my husband turned into a frock. After sewing the Raglan sleeve top, the next day I tried this. First, I cut the sleeves from the same shirt's sleeve, but by mistake, cut it without seam allowance. Then I was searching for a suitable piece of fabric and I got the black check material from my suitcase.
