5 Ways to Make Little Girl Clothing Last Longer

1.  Turn a too-short dress into a shirt.


2.  Roll up too-short pants to make capris. 

3. Or add a pretty ribbon to the bottom of those too-short pants to make them longer. 

4. Refashion the out-of-season shirt or dress into something special to match the current season.   

5. When all else fails, if clothes are too faded or too short to be worn in public anymore, turn them into comfy pajamas. 

How do you extend the life of your kids' clothing?

  1. We've done some of these things along the way. Clothes become pjs? yes. Right now, I have to turn long pants with holes in the knees into summer shorts. Long sleeves into short ones too.

  2. Right now I'm in the middle of adding extra ruffles to the bottom of all of Emahry's play dresses. Everything is just too short! I also have a stack of skirts with attached shorts for Eliya that need extra length as well.

    It seems like it's really difficult for us to find little girls' dresses, skirts, and shorts that are long enough.
