My grandmother sent me a turtleneck sweater for Christmas, and I knew I would never wear it, so I decided to turn it into a dress.

This is what I started out with, minus the turtleneck:


And these are some of the steps I went through to turn it into a cute little dress:





And the (almost) final product:

All I have to do now is hem the underarm part, and fix the stitching holding the shoulder/cowl thing on.

Thank you =) I'm thinking of going to some thrift stores to look for some more sweaters to convert now that I have a good idea on how to do it =)
