Felted Wool Dress
February 14, 2010
Last week when I was felting sweaters, I accidently threw one into the load that was mostly made of wool, but was also part synthetic. I have had this sweater since high school and while it no longer fit well, I have always hung onto it because of the cute detail on the front. The sweater shrunk up some, but otherwise looked the same. In examining the sweater I decided to cut off the sides of the sweater along with the sleeves in hopes of turning it into a dress for a young girl. After cutting off the sides of the sweater, I tucked the fabric under around the arm holes and then sewed down the sides of the sweater to make the dress. It really was that simple. And the end result were quite charming.
