DIY- Bandana Dress


A couple months ago, we were at a farm show in Amarillo.  One of the venders gave me a couple of CASE bandanas that I thought were pretty neat.  I knew exactly what I wanted to do with them- a Bandana Dress for my daughter.  I am just now getting around to it...

Here is how I did it.
I got two of the bandanas and sewed them with right sides together.
Then I gathered the very top of the bandanas to make it flow at the bottom.
I then got out one of my daughters dresses and cut out a pattern for the top.  Then I stitched it together, I just eye balled it... 
When the top is all stitched up, just sew it to the gathered skirt.
This is how it looks when it is all stitched up.
I wanted a couple of red accents, so I had some red ribbon that I stitched on for sleeves, a ribbon etc...
Then you are done!

What a great way to up-cycle! The colours and print are perfect for summer, and the lightweight fabric will be so comfy in hot weather!
