Turn Maternity Top into Toddler Dress

Published April 6, 2012 by MisMandie

What to do:

  • Sew down each side parallel to the original hems to take the bodice in to the appropriate size of your child.
  • Trim the excess fabric away
  • Remove the shoulder straps with a seam ripper and shorten to the correct length and reattach a 1/2 inch or so in from each side.
  • For a long dress you are done.  For a short dress, once again sew a hem that mirrors the original at the length you want and trim.  The excess fabric and then be gathered and attached at the bottom as a ruffle if you like or keep it simple.
