Hypatia was in the mood to model this morning, showing off her new sweater skirt. Actually, the hat and the skirt she is wearing are recently refashioned out of a sweater of mine that got an unfortunate grease stain on it. I cut two hat shapes out of the bottom, utilizing the ribbing at the bottom of the sweater. I made two tiny hats out of the sleeves, so she has matching hats that fit her dolls. Then the top of the sweater had these stripes across the chest, so I cut just a rectangle and made a simple elastic-casing for the waistband.
Since I hate to throw anything away before I get as much use out of it as possible, I'm very pleased to refashion that sweater into something she enjoys wearing.
