sweater dress.

1. find an old sweater. in this case my shrunken cashmere sweater.
2. i used one of sophie's dress as a sizing guide.
3,4. mark & cut. wasn't sure about the sleeves, if i could even make it. so i just made a straight cut. then decided to use the leftover sleeves of the sweater to make a smaller ones. sewing was kinda tricky but all in all easy.
5. i did it! i made sure that all the edges had the original seams. i thought it was very plain and boring for a girl's dress so...
6. we sewed some buttons and a flower i made from a ribbon to embellish the dress. (my lovely assistant picked the buttons) i was trying to do a faux necklace look.
tada!  so cute!
