    Cool Sweater Dresses

    I know that DD2's is a little well... Long... lol but I'll know for next time I need to cut out the neckline and all that fun stuff (I hate making new 'collars')
    Purple Dress on DD1
    Purple Dress on DD2 (it was made for her after all :P )
    DD1's brown dress
    DSDs front
    DSDs back

    I swear I won't become a crazy crafter... Maybe...

    They're great. Did you knit them or was this a sewing project?

    They are re-purpose lady sweaters. I just had tailor them to each girl. DSDs only took about an hour? If not a bit less. It helped she was hear to model and let me pin the dress every step of the way. I'll have to completely tear apart DD2's next dress though, she's shorter than I anticipated, and was napping while I made hers

    WHEW!! LOL! I was going to be sending in my orders if you actually knit those yourself! Still, those are probably even more cool if they're upcycled! Beautiful!

    That's amazing! It DOES put the idea in my mind though, that perhaps my mum would like to knit a sweater dress for DD - I love them!
