Sew and Tell (Part 5)

Sorry for the little Sew and Tell break…but we’re back with the rest of the reader submissions! 
First up we have Anna Rose from The How To Gal with three fun projects! Her first is this darling maxi skirt, and you can see her tutorial for it here.

She also made this fun pillow pad from an old sheet, and her tutorial is here.

And finally, she made this darling dress for her daughter from a little girls shirt and a women’s skirt! She blogged about it here.

Next up is Dana from No Lack Of Color. She used my polka dot tee tutorial to make her daughter a glittery pink polka dot onesie, and then went even further with a cute little Harry Potter themed onesie, which she gave as a gift. She blogged about it here.
Hannah, from Pearls and Scissors, took one of her grandmothers old shirts and shortened the sleeves, took out the collar, and took in the sides. It looks so cute, and the details on that shirt are so cool — you can see them better in the photos in her post here
Dana from Flaunt My Style refashioned this skirt, and then put together an Anne of Green Gable outfit — and who doesn’t love Anne Shirley? 
With my tulip hem tunic tutorial, Rachel, of Her Threaded Needle, made this darling top to show off her baby bump. 
Brianna, from Peters Posts, did four fun projects. The first is this darling striped maxi dress. She posted about it here, with several different ways of remixing it. 

Next, she made this darling halloween decoration, which she blogged about (with a tutorial) here.

Using a skirt she owned as a pattern, she made this pretty pencil skirt from scratch! Awesome job! She blogged about it here.

And finally, she made these fun curtains for her apartment. Her tutorial for it is right here.

Kilee, from One Little Momma, found a pair of Dolce Vida booties that she loved, but were more than she wanted to spend. With a little DIY magic, she made an almost identical pair with some cheap Target booties. Amazing, right? She blogged about them here, complete with a tutorial so you can do it too. 
Another bunch of great projects! Which was your favorite in this round??

  5. I'm totally in love with the grandmother shirt remade. I may have to figure that one out – Course I don't have the sentimentality of my grandma's shirt, but it would still be a great project!
