Making Stuff: Holiday Dresses {Women’s Sweater Refashion}

by This is Carrie on January 10, 2012

Before: Two gold women’s sweaters, a women’s blouse and a piece of embroidered sheer curtain fabric.

After: Two 60′s inspired mini dresses for the holidays.

The embroidered sheer curtain fabric that once sat in Todd’s (recently passed) Grandmother’s sewing pile made perfect puff sleeves for Pumpkin’s dress.

Basic Steps:

Cut off sweater sleeves.

Sew up side seams to fit child.

Cut new puff sleeves from fabric or women’s blouse to fit new armhole.

Sew in new sleeves, hem edge and insert elastic to create puff.
