I'm beginning to think that the princess has a borderline unhealthy attachment to some of her clothes. She has a really hard time getting rid of her favorite pieces, even when they no longer fit or are full of holes. This next dress fits both bills. Granted it is a super cute little number from Gymboree, but alas, it is a size 6, and her 8 year old butt was hanging out of the bottom. Not ok. I didn't get any before pictures (of course), but what I did was pretty straight forward and simple.
I used an old black t-shirt to add about 4 or 5 inches to the bottom. I made the strip longer than I needed and gathered it to make a little ruffle action.

The appliques on the front are literally falling off, so I did a couple of quick repairs on those too. She'll get another couple of months of use out of this one until she makes me come up with a miracle to keep it forever.
Thanks for stopping by!
