Okay so first let me say hello again! i am really trying to get better at the whole blogging thing, what i need to remember is to start taking before pics.... and then the after pics. mental note to self. okay so i am hoping everyone had a great and safe weekend, here in ohio its totally freezing!
So i have this sweater, its really pretty, glittery , the whole works. it looks great..... on the hanger. it just doesnt look great on me, not the sweaters fault right? So i didnt want to give up on it right away. after all it hung it my closet for a year. so i have heard all of these wonderful ways to repurpose, or recycle clothing and decided to give it a go. lucky for me my olivia loves dresses and glitter and all things girly. And it was easy peasy. I took the sweater, cut of the sleeves. I wanted to make her leg warmers. I just eyeballed the length of her calf and the measurement around her calf. I pinned it, gave it a quick stitch. Cut off the excess. I didnt sweat the length so much, i had the idea of just rolling it up and putting a cuff in it. pretty cute actually. They fit and she loves them, the great part is they keep her legs warm ( hence the name leg warmers-lol) and she can still wear leggings and dresses with tights in the cold weather! yay! As for the rest of the sweater, i cut the shoulder seam of the sweaterh folded the material in, to make it shorter around the neck line. perfect dress for olivia!! all she needs is a great long sleeve t , leggings and her leg warmers and she is set!
