I little Love from an old T-shirt

I had this old red t-shirt.  It was a good one and it served valiantly until it was time to be retired for re-purposing. 

I had a few scraps of some fun knit prints. It worked out perfect for play clothes. 

AuBrynne loves to wear this one because it is already so soft and broken in.
 This one was pretty simple:
Cut off the bottom 5 inches and add a gather.
Cut bodice down to correct size.
Cut off sleeves.
Assemble the heart applique and sew to bodice.
Ruffle a long piece of sheer fabric and sew on in the shape of a heart.
Attach new pink sleeves.
Sew up sides of bodice and sleeves.
Attach bottom ruffle.
If the neck is too large, stitch with elastic thread in your bobbin around the neck line.
