What do you do when you have a cute little dress, for a cute little girl, but it needs a cute little cardigan to go with it, and you cannot find one in her size to match? (take a breath here).
Well, you can always can a bigger one that matches and resize it! And it doesn’t take long at all and probably saves money.
PS: This is the dress I made from a dish towel, using the As You Like it Pattern with some of the optional changes.
Then it looks like this.
Turn inside out and pin the sides. Then sew 1/4″ down the bottom of the sleeves and sides of the cardigan.
Cut the ribbing from the bottom of the sleeves and bottom of the cardigan. Cut enough, plus seam allowance, to go around each part: 2 for the sleeves and a long piece for the bottom. I sewed the sleeve pieces together, then put them on the sleeves to sew. But the bottom isn’t connected, so I turned the front sides in and sewed it down so the edge wasn’t raw.
