Repurposed Sweater Dress

I totally forgot to take pics before I started cutting up my old cashmere sweater. There were a couple moth holes that were to big. Initially I thought about cutting off the sleeves to make cozy winter leggings for the Piggie and a pillow for the living room with the body of the sweater. But then I realized that the hole was positioned such that required some kind patch to cover up the pillow. Then I thought a sweater dress would be prefect. I used one of her dresses as a template and cut the body, then cut the sleeves and re-attached using my serger. It turned out pretty darn cute!

I have to go back and fix the seams in the armpit. I guess I didn't close it off the first go around!
