Sweater to Dress - Project Run and Play

Have you heard of the blog called "Project Run and Play"?  It's a fun little spin off of Project Runway, except it's in blog land, for kids clothing.  I'm not a contestant or anything (you should really check out the designers -- they are awesome!), but they said people could play along with the themes and link up their projects to share.  Fun!  I don't know if I will participate every week, but I wanted to at least once.

The theme this week is "Winter Wonderland".  Although I can't find any kind of rules or guidelines, so I just did something I had been wanting to do for a while -- a sweater dress for my daughter.

It started out as this cashmere sweater I found at a thrift store.


I was going to refashion it for myself, but I have far too many of those projects laying around, so I decided to use it for my daughter instead. 

Here's the refashion I came up with...




This is my favorite part of the dress :)

Is anyone else participating?  I would love to see your projects as well!
