The Sweater Dress tutorial!

Back to Repurposing!! yay!!! ok so I took an old turtle neck sweater of mine that i haven't worn in forever and decided to make a dress for my daughter..
I layed out my sweater and used one of my daughters existing dresses for a pattern

Then, just cut out the dress and the sleeves seperatly

Next sew the sleeves onto the dress.. (I did this before I sewed up the under arm of the sleeve.. it made it a little easier)

Next sew up the under arm of sleeves and the sides of dress...

Cut off extra siding and hem up bottom and sleeves
Next add belt loops for belt

Then add belt and acccesorizies!
Then you're done!!
