Dress for All Seasons

These two pictures show some long-sleeved dresses that my daughter wore during cool weather. (Admittedly, the lavender dress was a bit big on her at the time of the first picture, but it was spring, and she wore the dress throughout the following winter.)


And below are the same dresses altered for warmer weather! My daughter will grow out of the dresses by this coming fall, but the short sleeves add to the time that she can wear them.


The light colors and knit fabrics allow these dresses to span the seasons. Works for me!

Great idea! I bet it would work for tops too!

Great idea! I think we'll be cutting some pants and turn it into shorts :)
Thanks for the tip :)

That works only if you don't want to pass the dress on to little sister as a long sleeve dress. Another idea is to put leggings underneath when it get to short. Girls love to layer.

Wow, has she grown in less than a year! I love the idea. You could, if you did want to pass it down, pair it with a cardigan for cooler weather once again.

What a great idea.
