Matilda Jane Knock-off Dress Redo

So I had this dress.

But I didn't care for it. It was ok, just a bit boring. My husband didn't care for it at all. My daughter wore it to church a few times with some cream tights. So after looking at the Matilda Jane catalogue online after a friend of mine had a Matilda Jane party. I love the style, but not the price. Lucky I can do it on my own. Maybe not a dead ringer but I can create a similar look. I decided this dress would make a good base for that style, it just needed a few things.

I headed into my scrap fabric and added some ruffles and some buttons. Now it is pretty cute. I did however think it needed some ruffle bottom pants to finish the look. So I grabbed more fabric from my fabric stash and threw these together quickly.

I think they look pretty cute with this shirt too. Not too bad with the dress either.

  1. I think it's pretty cute! I've always loved that style. What a great upcycle!

  2. Very nice work!!! I love Matilda Jane -- the adult stuff and the kid stuff. But yes the price is insane for stuff they'll grow out of so fast :(
