Upcycled christening dress

When I saw a European sized pillow case in an op shop, I thought it would be perfect for a little girl's christening/baptism/naming day/flower girl dress.  It has lovely white on white embroidery, and is simple, not too frou frou.  I only just squeezed the pieces out of the pillow slip, lucky, I didn't want to have to find white fabric for the sleeves to match.  I don't have any white fabric in the house, and I'm sure it would be hard to match whites perfectly.  Anyway, it's size 1, and in the shop now.

Upcycled vests

I've been playing around with a few souvenir tea towels, and made some little vests.  I've made a few tea towel pinafores in the past, but I think these work quite well.  In the shop now.
