Re-Purposing Shirt Dress

OK--so a couple years ago--I had this awesome idea to make belly bands for ladies to wear when they were pregnant. I love those things! Well--lets just say that some of my prototypes worked--and others did not. SO out of the ones that did not, I was left with several tubes of fabric in different colors--that weren't big enough to do much with--but were too big to just throw out. SO they have been sitting in my closet for some time--UNTIL I figured out what to do with them....
The Tubes:

What to do with them:

I wanted to keep some of seams with the serged finish on the outside of the dress for a fun casual look. I think it turned out really cute. Its not quite a dress--and not quite a shirt. So its a shirt dress--to be worn with leggings underneath. Cute, Cute, Cute!

Nicole in her new outfit. It looks a lot cuter when she stands like a normal person instead of the Hunchback of Notre Dame.
