Make Kids Clothes Last Longer - A Refashion

My kid has a lot of clothes but she grows out of them so fast that they barely get worn. This makes me sad when I love an outfit she can no longer fit into. So I had an idea. Maybe I can refashion some of these things and make them last longer! I love NOT spending money on new kid clothes and I love refashioning so it seems like the perfect solution. We will start with this cute little number:

I love rompers!
I love this little romper and she only wore it about 3 times before she got too tall for it. So I decided it would make a great summer top! I started by cutting off the bottom where the leg holes and the crotch snaps are:

 Then I used pins to fold over the bottom to make a new hem:

Then I sewed that new hem down and ironed it when I was done:

It took me less than 10 minutes total to refashion this romper into a super cute summer top. Now we will get more use out of it!

Before and after!
I have many more kids clothes refashions coming soon!
