I ended up cutting the top part of the sundress off and adding ribbon to make it a cute top for my 5 year old daughter. I then sewed the bottom the sundress to the denim skirt (hand sewed - which took 3 hours – I guess I should get a sewing machine).
Below are pictures of what clothing articles I started with and what they ended up being. I also took pictures of my daughter and I wearing the clothes so you can see it actually turned out pretty cute and cost me nothing to make.

|This turned out to be a cute girls top once I added the straps (just used ribbon and tied it in a knot)|
|Sewed the 2 skirts together to get this fun peasant look|
