 Hello Refashion Co-op. Sometimes I find some strange clothes at clothes swaps. It adds to the fun of hunting for clothes.

 This light-weight sweater dress was extremely small and tight. It was also super low cut. I would need to be a foot taller and 40 lbs lighter to fit in this dress properly.

I decided to use this green blouse to make the dress bigger. It had a rip in the sleeve, so I didn't mind cutting it up.

I cut the dress open in the front and inserted the lace panel from the blouse. I wasn't sure what to do with the lower half of the dress. I didn't have anything to fill it in with. 

I decided to cut it off and make a shirt. I added the waistband from my sewing scraps. It looked great with a high-waisted skirt, so that is how I wore it. (See the photo above.)

Thanks for reading along, for more pictures and details go to I Can Work With That.
