I was searching for something to make tonight and decided to turn an old sweater into a dress for my granddaughter. For instructions, I turned to Make It & Love It.
First I found a sweater that I didn’t wear anymore. Grant it, orange probably isn’t my granddaughter’s favorite color, but it’ll work for my first try. I cut in about two inches and up the sides, cutting in a little at the arm holes.
Then I matched up the sleeves and cut them to a length that I thought would be appropriate for Twyla (my granddaughter).
Turn it right sides together and stitch up the sides to the arm holes. I chose to use a zig zag stitch so that it wouldn’t ravel.
Put the arms in the armholes, right sides together and pin all of the way around. I started stitching in the under arm where it wouldn’t show.
Turn it all right side out and you have a cute dress for a little girl:)
