My friend gave me this purple sweater that she didn't use anymore,
so I saved it for some future project down the road--
It matches this cute owl fabric
(that I was also saving for some future project)
I used a shirt for my guide that miss G currently wears
and cut out the front pieces from the existing sweater:
Then copied the front piece to cut out the back piece
for the new sweater:
I also used the shirt as a guide for the new smaller sleeve:
But I kept the original sweater sleeve edge
so I wouldn't have to refinish the edge.
Then I sewed the sweater together;
shoulder seams first, added the sleeves,
and then did the side seams.
All the edges were already finished
because I used the previous sweaters edges.
miss G likes this picture the best
because her hair "goes to the side like a princess":
