Lil Blue Boo Dresses

More t-shirt recycling going on around here, each made with this pattern by Lil Blue Boo.
One reluctant little model...
Peasant necklines because I am too lazy to do the suggested necklines.  No pattern alteration needed whatsoever - just skip the Lil Blue Boo step about adding a neck fabric piece.
More reluctance...
Then that burst of energy only a toddler can get.  Why can't they bottle that for us old folks?

Nice dresses. I really like the pattern too. You did something different with the neckline, making it look more peasant style. Like that!

I have that pattern, too. I love it!

Cute stuff! Love the Sienna and Hoodie patterns. The hoodie pattern makes cute tunics & dresses when lengthened, too.

I just bought that pattern but haven't used it yet. LOVE what you did - darling!! Tell us how you did your neckline...looks like you did it differently than the pattern (which is what is keeping me from trying it by the way!) - so if you have an easier way, will you share...pretty please?

I haven't tried any of the patterns yet, but I have been so tempted. You have confirmed I have gotta get on it. I so can't keep up with you!

You are all correct that I added the peasant neckline. This is because I am lazy. And because I made a couple of versions where I fussed with the neckline and wasn't happy with the results. I didn't have to alter the pattern at all - there was enough t-shirt stretch to make the peasant neckline as is.

Great tops! I love any project that includes recycling stuff I already have on hand.
