More sentimental diapers

I've had this dress since I was 14 years old.  Back then, it was the 90s and sunflowers were THE THING and I was hooked on them.  Getting this dress was a BIG DEAL for me because we didn't have much money and it was actually stylish and also flattering (I wasn't breastfeeding at the time so my cups weren't running over).  I remember that I just felt so beautiful when wearing this dress back when I was a couple of sizes smaller. 

Today, It no longer fits well (it's slightly tighter--ahem) and it's not really my style anymore--or anyone's for that matter.  If I weren't making diapers for my daughter, this dress may have stayed in my closet for years and years.  But I gave in and cut it up for diapers because it is, in fact, a way to save the dress while still keeping it useful.  And so we have this:

My daughter now wears the dress I so adored when I was 14 years old.  Seriously.  Can it get any better than this?  I don't think so!
