A dress redo!

So I bought this shirt and I love it.  I wear it under a cute little grey sweater and it looks fun and fashionable.haha (Pardon the bad lighting in the pictures, I couldn't wait to post this.)
And I bought this dress last year on clearance for 10.00, but the top didn't fit and I forgot to return it. I cleaned out my closet this year and found it!  I loved the fabric and I couldn't return it so I started to think what could I do with it and then I remembered the grey polka dot shirt and thought "hey wait a minute here!"
See isn't it cute???
First I cut off the halter part of the blue dress. Then I stretched out the grey shrit and layed it on my dress for a pattern. Then I stitched the arm wholes, and a neck line. I took the original straps from the halter and used those for the tie part, notice the little wooden beads, I love those and thought I could use them. I didn't even have to put a hem in the bottom because I just cut from the top of the dress.  It turned out great!  I LOVE it!  I need to make or find a brown cover up to wear with it.
