APPLE DRESS

I've been wanting to make Aubrey a dress and all the patterns I found seemed too complicated for me, so I took a tank top (salmon) and t-shirt (apples) of mine that were too big and I never wore (I got them at a thrift shop), and turned them into this dress. I used the neckline of the existing tank top and the sleeve hem as well, so that made it easy, then I gathered the whole width of the apple shirt for the skirt part. I even reused the little brown button from the shirt and put it on the flower I made. I also reused the bottom brown trim as the waistband.

Sorry, these are bad photos. The top is actually salmon in color.
The brown waistband continues as ties in the back.
