A Dress for Ansley's Friend

Ansley got invited to her first birthday party. She kept talking about it as soon as she opened the invitation. Then she got sick- runny nose, coughing sick. Poor thing (and poor us b/c I think we're getting it too).

Anyway, I made this little dress using a men's shirt that Ansley's friend's mom (who is also my friend) gave me last summer. I first got the idea from MADE.

I left the pocket on the front; partly out of laziness and mostly out of curiosity to see how it would look. It's totally functional, which is fun.

I used Simplicity 5695, like this dress. Instead of all of the tiers, I extended view c/d into an a line. I didn't want to add the ruffle b/c the buttons up the front of the dress are so cute! I think it turned out better than my first attempt at a shirt dress.
