Repurpose Shirt

I love this whole repurpose thing, so I made Nu a shirt from one of her Dad's old abandoned T-shirts.
But I am also a slave to beautiful new fabric, so this poor kid got another ruffle

I'd also like it to be able to grow with her so I made the arms long and added little fabric...what are those called, big in the 80's people...roll up cuff holders?!
 (they are definately NOT called that. You know someone cares and put time into a catchy name...)

Not sure the faded t shirt material works with the other, but it's soft and I think there is something sweet about a little girl wearing her Dad's old shirt.

I also used elastic thread and attempted shirring which made the neck stretchy and fit over her giant cranium with minimum protest.

She's also lying on a quilted change pad I made. Fleece on both sides with nylon inside. Wide because she wiggles and it can graduate to a sideline blanket or whatever later in life.
