What do you do when your little girl is so active that she thrashes her clothes? Throw them away...or make them work. Today I attempted to make them work.
These grey pants from Old Navy had gnarly holes at the knees, so I cut right above the holes and hemmed them to be shorts. When I put them on Marley, she asked if they were boy shorts, haha! I said, "No, they are girl shorts, but we can make them look more like girl shorts." I rummaged through my sewing supplies and found some cute lace trim. Perfect! I just added the lace trim to the ends and it made all the difference. Marley loves her new shorts. Her response was, "Oooh, these are so cute!" Such a girl!
So we ended up having a lesson on being resourceful and creative with clothes. It was a nice project I could do beside my daughter for Home Ec this week. ;)
