Anyway, back to today's project. A few months ago, my sister-in-law was getting rid of a bunch of clothes and asked my oldest daughter if she wanted any of it. I not-so-patiently waited for Ruthie to go through it, and then I picked out a few things that I thought would work for refashions. One of which was this sweater with the cute ruffles:
I started with the Nessie Pattern by Craftiness in Not Optional for the basic size and shape. I used the existing length of the sweater to preserve both the hem and the ruffles at the neckline. Also cut the sleeves using the existing hem. Then I appliqued a cute little heart from the template in this post just to make it a little more toddler friendly :) This really was a simple project ... the only sewing involved was the shoulder and side seams and the applique. And now Mae has a cute new dress!
