Next, i took the sleeves that i cut off, and with my daughters arm measurement in mind, cut the sleeves sleeves shorter cutting on the side of the sleeve that was once connected to the sweater originally, this way i could keep the nice woven hem that was already at the wrists. I also snipped down the sleeve lengthwise, to make the sleeves a bit skinnier.
Finally, turn the dress inside out, and sew on either side from wrist to hem to close up the sides and arms of the dress. After i was done i took some of the left over scraps and made a few flowers for the neckline by sewing the ends of one strip of fabric together and laying it flat on the sweater to make a circle. I hand stitched it down and sewed a button in the middle of each one.
