I was inspired by the racks of used sweaters at the thrift store the other day. I grabbed 5, hoping to come up with something amazing!! What came was an adorable, comfortable sweater dress for my little toddler. This is a very easy project for a beginner. Depending on how you do it, you may not even need to hem anything! It's also ridiculously inexpensive to make. Have fun!
Step 1: Cut a-line shape
I'm a big fan of using my child's clothes as a pattern. For this dress, I grabbed an a-line dress that fits her well and used it as a reference. This doesn't need to be exact. It can be a little loose or even a little snug would be cute. Your sweater should be stretchy. Lay the dress down at the bottom of the sweater and cut an a-line shape. You are going to use the bottom of the sweater so you don't have to hem it.
