I bought this sweater at a thrift store intending to make sweater pants. But then after looking at it some more I wanted to try and make it into a dress for Aleah. I took in the sides and made the width of the arms smaller. The neck was really small so it would fit her well.
But the arms were still too long. I loved the brown cuff on the end of the sleeve so I did not want to just cut it off and throw it away. Instead I cut off the sleeve, a little shorter than the length of her arm, and sewed the brown cuff inside out to the bottom of the sleeve. Now when I fold up the cuff it stays put and looks perfect around her wrist.
I was a little worried that the bottom would be too long but wasn’t sure how I would fix that. Aleah tried on the dress and it fit fine so I didn’t have to deal with that part. Phew! She likes this dress because it is comfy and also keeps her pretty toasty.
