    Oh how adorable!!!

    Well, the first one, and the last one should probably be called nice looking, but . . .

    They all look so wonderfully fresh!

    I'm having a hard time visualizing this particular transformation. :mrgreen:

    The finished dress is adorable.

    I took the long sleeves off the dress sz 4. Sewed them together so I had one small piece of fabric. Layed the panties from another leotard over the fabric and traced around it. Beginning to think I should have taken pictures. Wasn't wuite wide enough to go around so... I took the leg hole pieces and added that to the sides. Then sewed the panties inside the dress where the skirt joined the dropped bodice.

    I loved the way you used the sleeves from the dress to make the panties. Clever you.

    My favorite is the happy bright yellow and orange dress, I think. I liked all of them. Cute idea when a dress is too short

    Both dresses from same McCalls pattern. I trace the size I need onto another paper so I can use the pattern again. Sleeves are interchangeable.

    The older I get (71) the more I enjoy. I'm no longer afraid to try anything. If it doesn't work, I can always cut pieces for a quilt.
