But it's just so darn cute, and little girls just love hearts (so I'm told), so I couldn't part with it quite yet. I got a red cotton shirt of Owen's that was getting too short in the arms and cut off the bottom 9 inches. I then measured Reese' waist and cut the red material so it will fit around her. Then I took the dress and cut it off just above the gathered part of the skirt. I doubled over the red material and sewed it onto the bottom of the dress. to make it into a skirt with a yoga band waist.
Did I mention that I had enough left over fabric for a headband?
