Girls tulle skirt into AG ballgown

My daughter had this tulle skirt that did not fit her any longer.  So, as I always do, I thought of other things I could do with it.  Of course I thought I could make something for the dolls!

I held it up to one of our dolls and realized if I cut this skirt in half it would make 2 doll dresses.  So I cut it in half.  I fitted it on the doll again and decided to fold the elastic under.  Then I stitched my cut edges.

I added some ribbon shoulder straps to tie in back.  They are spaced about an inch and a half apart.
 I zig-zagged the ribbon on the folded under portion of the elastic waist.

I had this flower trim I thought would make a pretty waistband.

And here is a new ballgown for our AG dolls!

 AND, I still have another half of a tulle skirt for a second dress!

Here is one more....

Evening gown from girls skirt!
