Diaper Holder Refashioned to Dress!

I have never done a refashion.  As a matter of fact, my clothing making skills consist of sewing one toddler skirt.  But I still took on the task, so if I did anything completely wrong, please don't judge.

This beauty used to be a diaper stacker.

I forgot to take any before pictures, but here is the process.

I pulled out my seam ripper and took the bottom out of the diaper stacker.
Here is what it looked like after that first step.  I was lucky the top was already sewn.

The sides needed to be taken in, so I cinched them to the desired tightness and put a pin in.

I flipped it wrong side out, smoothed out the fabric and pinned the sides.
Then I sewed a straight line down both sides making new side seams.

From the excess fabric I seam ripped from the bottom and cut from the newly seamed sides, I made a ruffle by sewing them all together and then completed it with one long basting stitch.  
Then I attached it to the dress and began sewing.

One obsolete diaper stacker turned dress.

I love this new little dress!


  1. Wow! I think that is one of the most brilliant reuses I have seen. And adorable, not to mention adorable!

  2. Cute! Of course it helps to start with a cute diaper stacker.

  3. What a genius idea! It turned out absolutely darling!!


We love 'em, so leave 'em!
