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.
This cute little little dress took me seriously about 15 minutes to make. That included coaxing her to try it on 4 different times.
This sweater had a deep V-neck. I had some extra knit fabric that I sewed into the V. I need to add something else at the top. Ruffles, maybe?
Look at how adorable she is.
She is so comfortable in this dress.
Here is the shirt before I started to sew it. I first had her try it on inside out. Then I pinned where it needed to be taken in (its those yellow dots around the armpit).
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.
I love it! Doesn't it make you feel good making something new out of something old...great job!
Great job!!! I love using clothes I don't wear anymore to make things for my kids!!!
That is a seriously cute project~ I'm dying to see if I have anything to try that with.
