I found this beautiful dress at the op shop and immediately thought it would look amazing as a Chanel inspired suit for my 5 year old.
I thought the tip in the kick off post to use original details from the item being upcycled was a great idea. I kept the original sleeves in the jacket, just resized them as they had an amazing pleat detail. I also kept the original hem and lining in the dress. The dress I made is the “Pleatie Playsuit by Tadah Patterns”, and i drafted the jacket. Thanks for the great tips and inspiration.
