dress refashion

I found this little black dress on clearance - nice cut and fabric but too short and sleeveless - not quite right for my little girl.

I cut up an old shirt and now it is longer and has sleeves - much better. The shirt wasn't quite wide enough around so I inset a second shirt button placket between the button placket of the toile shirt - now it works - plus it is a fun detail.
