Sweater Dress Upcycle for a Toddler from Womens Shirt

Today, I made my toddler a fun hooded upcycled sweater dress that she has not taken off yet. She is in love with it, and so am I. You all know how much I love to make my girlies clothes. I especially love making them clothes out of clothes that I would normally send to the thrift store.

Then I just sewed along the pins, cut away the extra fabric. Then I added the knit fabric to the V-Neck.

Seriously. This project took me 15 minutes. Go take a look in your closet. I know there are clothes in there that you do not wear anymore that your kiddies would love to wear. Plus it is really easy on the pocket book.
