My 1st Refashion and a Smile

I have been wanting to try my hand at refashioning for quite some time.  I've read lots of blogs and tutorials on it, and dreamed up some of my own items I could attempt to change, but have been a little too timid to try.  I finally realized if I'm never going to wear the item again anyways, it wouldn't hurt to try right?!?

This was the dress I wore for our rehearsal dinner when we got married.  I would have taken a pic with it on, but my post-baby body would never be able to get close to fitting into it :)  Besides the memories from the night I wore it, I love the fabric and just haven't been able to part with it.  You want to see what I came up with???
This lovely shirt!  It's a little hard to tell what it looks like, but I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.  The only thing I think I'll change is to get a solid color ribbon to run through the top.  Perhaps a chocolate brown one?!?  Anyways, maybe one day I'll post a picture wearing it so you can get the full effect.

On another note, my little Noah has started smiling.  This picture doesn't fully capture it, but I promise it's not just gas :)  He laid next to me smiling and cooing today for a good 10 minutes.  I really got to enjoy it too because Anthony was napping at the time.  I love my little guy!!!
