Since our family decided to dress up together as Studio Ghibli characters, we decided for my youngest to dress her up like Mae from My Neighbor Totoro. (Especially since my husband has a Totoro costume.) The for the next couple of posts I will walk through the different pieces I made to complete my daughters costume. For this post I will focus on the pink dress. Now I did not start off planning to make a dress. I honestly thought I would be able to find one for her, but finding a solid pink or red dress in a 2T dress did not seem to be possible. So that got me thinking of an easy way to make her a dress. I thought about buying fabric and going from scratch, but that would also require a pattern. Instead while walking through Michael’s I got the idea of using a t-shirt and modifying it into a dress.
