This is really awesome... Thanks for sharing how you did it.  I used to be lost going to thrift stores... it totally helps to have ideas of what to look for.

looking at that pattern, i can imagine how "interesting" the original sweater must have been.. but i absolutely love what you did with it!

This is so cute! Im loving it.

Just a suggestion to anyone that tries this, and finds the seams unraveling, another way besides felting is to cover the seam with bias binding, just like you would with normal fray-ish fabric. Fold and stitch together/

Is this something a novice sewer could create? I love this dress - I've been eyeing a similar but very expensive one in a shop.
