Reagan's legs are getting longer and longer and her skirts are getting shorter and shorter. So, I am having a problem finding skirts small enough to fit her waist that are long enough. So I took a couple of skirts that fit her well in the waist but are too short and added some length. I actually made this original skirt and shirt last summer after seeing similar ones in boutiques for well over $30. (Sorry I forgot to take a before pic, just imagine the hounds tooth in place of the denim.)
The original skirt I had made was too small this year, so I cut the bottom off and sewed it onto the bottom of the too short denim skirt. Seriously, this took all of about 10 min., (even with my not-so-much-a-seamstress skills), and now she can wear it another season. I luv upcycling, recycling, or whatever you want to call it....I call it saving money....makes me happy inside!
