Men's Shirt to Toddler Dress

I started making this dress for Jaiden about 2 years ago and forgot all about it. Today when I was going through some material, I found it! I decided I wasn't going to put it off any longer, and make it for Arya.

I found the instructions on Craftster from Cheytown. If you have sewing knowledge, the instructions are fairly easy to follow. I made some changes to the dress by not adding trim to the top, I just turned it down and hemmed it. I did not add trim to the bottom, I just used pinking shears to finish. And, I made the dress a lot shorter than the instructions stated, I am not a fan of long dresses on my girls.
