I have just discovered the art of reconstructing clothes and I am hooked! I was thrilled to find a beautiful sweater (that was too small for me) at the thrift store for $2 and then turn it into a sweater dress that my daughter loves! I am terrible at finishing sewing projects that are started from scratch and working with flimsy pattern paper, but since half the job was already done for me, this one only took about an hour. Save time and money, be creative and green, and make a better fitting garment than off the rack, why have we not been taught this? Has anyone else done this? I've also seen examples of pillowcase dresses and dresses made from mens shirts. Any other suggestions?
