Sweater 2 Shrug

My friends little girl was competing in a local Little Miss pageant recently. Well the dress code was church attire and she found her the cutest dress but not exactly church attire.So we headed to the thrift store in hopes to find a shrug or a shirt that would work under the dress. We didn't find them but we did find this beauty for $1.00DSC_0759
We knew for $1.00 we could make something work. I started by having her try it on and marked the length that we wanted. Keep in mind the hem, and cut off the bottom. Next fold your sweater in half and mark the middle of the front where you will want to cut it.DSC_0760I grabbed a washable marker to draw my line where I would round the edges. Then once that piece is cut off flip it onto the other side and mark it and cut. DSC_0761All that is left is to press and sew! Super easy and quick! What do you think?DSC_0767What do you think of the side by side? Left Not perfect for and 8 year old right Perfect for a Little Miss Princess!                                 DSC_0770DSC_0774  This was so easy and the sweater will look cute over any t-shirt too!
