Making a jumper into a toddler dress
A nip in the air last week led to a morning of swapping over summer for winter clothes. Long sleeves and pants out of their boxes and short sleeves and dresses into storage. A moment of purging overtook me as well & I threw items I'd hung onto for far too long into a pile for the Op Shop. Then I spied a tutorial on a blog titled make it and love it to turn a jumper into a little wee dress, and before I knew it a number of clothes in the Op Shop pile were back in a pile in my craft room awaiting their moment of upcycling.
I started with one very well worn jumper similar to this one in style (forgot to take a picture of the original jumper in my haste to chop and sew it into a new creation).
And after some simple cutting and sewing this is how it turned out. Pretty pleased. Best of all no actual measuring required, just some eye-judged snips. My kind of sewing!
Now we need some of the cold weather back so Little Imp can wear it with some tights.
