sweater dress

My first dress. YES!




If you read my last post, Cleaning the Closet, you would know, I was attempting to make a dress from one of my old sweaters.





After tons of redo's, I completed it.








What a beauty. I had to bribe my daughter to take a picture in it.




Safety was not my man focus today, but on top of the table, is the best lighting in our home.








I love the way it turned out. Now I am thinking I can make more clothing.





For the dress, I had to cut the sweater completely apart, and hand sew the dress back together.





I cut the sleeves completely off.


This is when I became worried.




I then cut the end part of the sleeve, and stitched it back onto the dress.





It took a lot of time, but I feel accomplished.





The best part of this accomplishment, is my daughter hates it. Notice the tantrum on the floor.






Its to itchy mom.
The zipper it touching me.
I cant get it off.
Its to long.


Hmmmm, do I force her to wear it to church?

Maybe some bubble gum will solve the problem.

Very cute...Just layer it with a t-shirt and tell her "If nobody comments at church you won't have to wear it again". And with a dress that cute she's bound to get attention!!! (It worked like a charm for me with an adorable but itchy little wool coat I bought at a garage sale for my 3 year old...she got so many "oohs and ahhs", I wasn't sure if she would ever take it off :) Take care, Laurel
