I have a few sweaters that I’ve had for a while and haven’t worn. I figured it was time to finally refashion them into something and what better than a cute little sweater dress for my 15 month old!
So, I took this old Express sweater
I took one of my daughters dresses to use in place of a pattern. Go head and cut through both layers like I did. Since this sweater was a bit short, I was able to use the front v-neck for this project.
Next, I placed the fabric inside out and sewed the sides and shoulders.
I had my daughter try it on before creating sleeves.
I used the very bottom portion of the sleeves to create the ribbed bell sleeves on her new dress.
I was also able to use the original bottom of the sweater so there was no need to hem! Here’s a before & after shot.
And just some cute pics of my daughter modeling her new sweater dress 🙂
She never stops moving!
