    Saw these dresses on her site….I can’t wait to try and make one. I have a little girl on the way……so it will be a bit before she gets into one…..but I’m excited to make her one anyhow!

  2. Mandy Sadler says

    I love it – please sign me up! I have twin daughters who are 2.5 and Im always looking for cute outfits I can make them. Thanks for the great blog and the great giveaway.

  3. Shalee says

    I love the dresses and was so sad to see that I didn’t win on her blog. I love her blog and have to look at it alot for cute ideas for my little girl and nieces..

  4. says

    Love this idea!!! I also make t-shirt quilts with the special shirts that we don’t want to part with. This is better than donating to goodwill or getting rid of stuff at a yard sale! Hope I win!!! Blessings!

    Ooooh, I love Ashley’s blog and her work! The Random Number Gods did not pick me the last giveaway of this pattern. Maybe they will smile on me this time 😉

    These dresses are just too cute and simple easy to read patterns so those of us who aren’t the best of sewers (moi LOL) can make them. I checked out her site and love the Custom Nursery Name Art. Would look great on the wall in my granddaughters room.

    Thanks for this great giveaway

    this little pattern for the halter dress is sooo precious. there are a lot of nice things in the shop, but this patter is by far my first choice. some funny t shirts could make very funny little dresses

    i have 2 1/2 year old twins and i LOVE making clothes for them, this dress would be perfect for my daughter!

  9. says

    What a fantastic idea! I would love to make my little one a million of these dresses and skirts–and then I would have an excuse to make my husband get rid of those 20 year old faded tee-shirts!

  10. Laura says

    I discovered Ashley’s blog a few weeks ago and it has inspired me to start sewing again. Aug 18th is my birthday too…this e-pattern would be a great birthday gift!

  11. Jaci says

    This epattern would be great I was recently shopping and came across such cute t-shirts on sale that despite knowing they wont fit my daughter for at least a few years I still bought them – this would be a great thing to do with them!! Please enter me in the drawing!
