sweater dress

~Crap to Craft~

I have had this old sweater since high school and held onto it because I love the colors.

*note- this picture was taken after I had already started to cut into it. I always forget to get my camera out*

It has become smaller and smaller on me it seems so I wanted to re-fashion it and thought a yummy fall sweater dress for Macie was perfect:

I should have waited till morning to snap some pictures but knew I would forget.

I love how it turned out and am now running off to my closet to find more old sweaters to chop up!
