One of my favorite things to do when designing dresses for City Kids is to cut up old tee shirts, button downs and fabric and turn them into cute little dresses. Here are a few of my latest before and afters:
I've done a ton of these and have just started taking the before pictures. I need to remind myself to do it every time....
Would you believe that the fabric from these adorable Sounders dresses came from a jersey knit couch slip cover?!
I'm kicking myself for not taking a before picture of that slip cover sitting on a couch. I think that was upcycling at it's best...I got a ton of dresses out of that thing!
Anyhow, it's fun giving new life to old clothing and old fabric. Not all of City Kid's garments are upcycled but a lot of them are. For more upcycled goodnedd check out the shop here. I also take custom orders...if you have a school shirt or sports shirt or any favoite tee that you want turned into a dress for your little one, just let me know!
