When I saw this cute little sweater-vest for only 49-cents at Mel Trotter (my favorite local thrift store), I knew I couldn’t pass it up.
This sweater-vest is a toddler size 18 months (although it’s shrunken up to more of a 12 months), and my kids are nowhere near that small. Still, I figured I’d discover a use for it, so I went ahead and brought it home.
When my daughter saw it, she informed me that it would make an adorable sweater-dress for her American Girl doll.
What a great idea, huh?
When I tried the vest on Isabelle, it was a bit too big, so I pinned it in at the shoulder seams and at the side seams…
Then I ran it through the sewing machine.
After the sewing was complete, I trimmed off the excess material…
…and tried the new frock on Isabelle…
When I showed my daughter, she was very happy with the results!
American Girl doll clothes can be pretty expensive, so at a mere 49-cents, this refashion was a steal! And easy too!
