I thought I had already published this (as in before Upcycled and Reused), but apparently it got lost in the draft phase because it published when I tried to update. I apologize for the quality of the photos. I haven’t been able to get pictures of A’s new clothes when she isn’t in them as the only time she isn’t is when they are dirty. A is now a baby in constant motion. A faster camera would probably help, but as my crafting budget is going toward all of the lovelies in my Presents for the Craftroom Series…no new camera.
In the continuing saga of keeping baby A warm I hit the thrift store and bought her some
sweaters dresses with leggings. A has already grown out of the purple sweater dress I made from a sweater I had that was too short. So now I’m making her more even warmer dresses. The first sweater had a cowl that I decided to keep. It just looked warm and cuddly when I put it on her, so she has her first cowled sweater dress. Though my husband calls it her Uncle Fester Dress.
When you forget to unfold the sweater and cut the angle for the arm in the middle of the sweater instead of the edge
you have to improvise. I ended up with this Sweater Vest Dress.
The neck is a little wonky because of the extreme angle I had cut and a sudden lack of finishing time, but no one seems to notice when A wears it.
Both dresses are extra long to cover her tummy even when they ride up as she is learning to crawl and each has a set of leggings made from the sweater sleeves.
