T-shirt Dresses Rock!!
My obsession with making dressess out of recycled t-shirts started last summer -- when Val was recuperating from her foot surgery. A dress was so much easier than shorts or pants...And I had a really good time picking out just the perfect messages on the t-shirts...
During Val's rehab -- she was in a nursing home. Clearly, the youngest person there...but it was still kinda insulting when a nurse walked in one day and said, "Are you the Mom?"...ugh...Remember this post?
You already saw the picture of Val with her July 4th dress...
During Lilly's visit -- we went to the home to visit with Val. However, Lillian decided to be shy on that day. (please note that she did NOT let go of her purse...)
This is a picture of my favorite daughter, Valerie, wearing gown #2 -- which started with a pink flamingo t-shirt...
And this is my personal favorite -- gown #3. Can you read the words?
But, trust me -- it's the TIE-DYED SKIRT that makes this dress!!
Yes, it is important to me that my daughter be the best-dressed resident in the nursing home...and I have ONE MORE DRESS planned before she goes home to finish her recovery.
Well -- since last summer -- I have been stocking up on 25 cent t-shirts from the Goodwill store. My stash is AWESOME...and now I can make t-shirt dresses for EVERYBODY I KNOW...
Oh, yeah. This is gonna be fun!!
