Sweater Dress

Thank goodness, my midwest friends and family are finally starting to come out from under last week's polar vortex. My sister sent a picture of her thermometer last Thursday that read -39.5. YIKES! That's not even showing the windchill factor.  This refashion is in honor of all those brave souls who have had to endure the frigid temperatures of the last few weeks.

I started with a couple of thrift shop sweaters and combined them into a warm and cozy dress.

You can find out how I did it over here. While you're over there, you can enter to win a pair of Smittens by pinning it to one of your PInterest boards and leaving a comment.

Happy New Year and stay warm, my friends!

This is really lovely on you!!! Wow, I am pleasantly surprised on how the two sweaters came together so well, though I shouldn't be surprised as I've loved ALL of your refashions. Big fan :)
