Dresses from Shirts

Do you remember a while ago, when I had an ill-fitting shirt and I made it into a dress for my girls by shirring the waist??  That shirt refashion post is here, and here's a couple of pictures from then:
Well, they loved it.  But the problem - - only one dress - and two girls.  So when I saw a stripey tank at a garage sale for $.50, I knew I'd use it to make another dress.  Once again, super easy, super cute.
 If you haven't used elastic thread yet, you have to give it a try!! (here's what to look for, and here's a video on it shrinking - so fun!)

And another shot of my models:
