I had been interested in altering a piece of clothing after seeing some pretty inspirational things on-line. It didn’t look that difficult. I purchased a woman’s size sweater from a thrift store with the intentions of making an adorable sweater-dress for my 5 year old. I could picture her wearing it with some cute tights and boots this Fall.
The idea was to leave the length of the dress alone but take in the sides and shorten the sleeves. What went wrong?
The idea was good but the execution was so poor and my patience was so lost that the “dress” went into the garbage.
