I think there's a tutorial somewhere on the web, but basically what I did was cut the sleeves off a sweater, trim and sew them up like a pair of pants, and add a casing with elastic at the top. 



Now she just needs a dress or something to wear over them. . .Hmmm. . .

Clever!  I love the colors too... my little girl is very pale and though I love bright colors it washes her out.  So I love pairing simpler dresses or sweaters and skirts with funky cute tights  Smiley  Thanks 4 the idea!

What a great idea for recycling a sweater. I have one or two I really shouldn't wear any more, but couldn't bear the waste of getting rid of them. This is a really great solution.
