Tee shirt challenge!

One of the groups that I belong to, the 'Our Little Darlings' forum, had a tee shirt challenge/competition....the pattern was supplied by a pattern maker called Nedra and those that entered were asked to submit up to three entries.  We were asked to make the tee shirt into a dress and could change things such as the neckline, sleeves, length etc. as we wished.

I decided to enter just one dress.  I didn't make any changes to the main part of the tee shirt, apart from lengthening it and adding a couple of frills to the bottom and then an applique to the front to match the frills.  I was lucky enough today to learn that I'd won second place for my entry!

There were 19 entries in all and the winner got 43 votes whilst I got 42!  It was a nice feeling to think that I had that many people liking my entry!

So here it is, modelled by my little Ellie, handpainted by Dianna Effner:
