This is a little dress I made from 2 unfinished sample sweaters. The braided yoke is so cute!
Rather than following a pattern, when recycling, I try to make the most of the material. So this turned out to be 2 sizes to large for skinny me. I like what the gathered top does for my tiny cup size, though…
The skirt is supposed to cling to the hips. I like how it turned out in general, it just needs someone to fill it!
