Well, you can always can a bigger one that matches and resize it! And it doesn't take long at all and probably saves money.
PS: This is the dress I made from a dish towel, using the As You Like it Pattern with some of the optional changes.
To get started, grab a cardigan sweater you want to resize. Try to grab one that doesn't have a super large neck or that doesn't dip too much.
Then grab a shirt that fits the little one, or use shirt pattern. Then place it right on the top of the cardigan and cut around it, making sure to leave seam allowances. Try to make it a little bigger if you want it to go over bulkier clothing.
Then it looks like this.
Turn inside out and pin the sides. Then sew 1/4" down the bottom of the sleeves and sides of the cardigan.
Cut the ribbing from the bottom of the sleeves and bottom of the cardigan. Cut enough, plus seam allowance, to go around each part: 2 for the sleeves and a long piece for the bottom. I sewed the sleeve pieces together, then put them on the sleeves to sew. But the bottom isn't connected, so I turned the front sides in and sewed it down so the edge wasn't raw.
This completed made for a fun matching Thanksgiving outfit. I hope everyone had a great holiday or just took some time to think about the good things in life, even if they seem few.
