DescriptionI wanted some sweater dresses for winter I hadnt gotten back in shape enough to be comfortable in my old jeans, but I didnt have much sweaters that are long enough to be decent with leggings. Also, I needed something that can be opened up easily for breast feeding. So I made this dress/cardigan.
It was made using wool sweater knit, so it is very warm. I made it using only the serger, so it didnt take long. There are snap button closures along the front and the belt (I hate the little yarn that retailers use to hold the belt in place). When its buttoned up, I can wear it with leggings as a dress. When unbuttoned, it looks good as a layering cardigan.
I actually dont wear it anymore – the wool knit I bought is quite scratchy!
wool knit – scratchy!
