Step 1: Chop Up the Turtleneck Sweater

Cut out the sleeves and turtleneck of the gray sweater.

I used an old sweater as a template to cut out the bodice from the black sweater.

I used an old pencil skirt as a pattern to cut out the skirt from the gray sweater.

I attached the sleeves to the bodice using the flat technique.

Step 5: Attach the Turtleneck

With right sides together, attach the turtleneck to the bodice.

Attach the skirt to the front and back bodice.

Sew the sides of the dress from the sleeve cuff to the bottom of the skirt.
