donate or recreate?

Out with the old and in with the new <3
So I am in the process of moving and have had to go through all of my old clothes and I'm left thinking do I donate it or recreate it. I have a room designated for my closet alone and I have filled three garbage bags full of clothes to donate but of course I took out the stuff that gave me a vision to make something new!

The first thing in the pile to recreate is a poka-dot sweater that was probably my moms way long ago!

From and old sweater to a new dress for me!! Yay!!

How To:
This was super easy to do!
1. Turn the piece of clothing inside out.
2. Place fitted dress on top and pin the sides.
3. Sew the sides and cut off the excess.
4. Cut the sleeves 1/2 inch to 1 inch longer than you want them to be for a seam allowance.
5. Fold and sew the edges while it is still inside out.
6. Put on and time to partyyyy!

I used another dress to pin the sides while it was inside out
