How to revamp your kids' old clothes!

When you are shopping wardrobe for your children it may seem as a never-ending process, because they are constantly growing out of their clothes. If the clothes is not too small yet, then 
the favourite dress or a shirt is stained with dirt, chocolate or cranberry juice. Fortunately, there are a couple of 
suggestions to how you can extend your kid’s clothes life, and make them look brand new. 


From Denim Pants to Stylish Skirt


If your little girl is thin, and the pants eventually only fit her on the waist, but nowhere else, turning them into 
 a skirt is the best solution. Measure the length you want the skirt to be and cut the excess material. Unstitch the 
seam between the legs, and start by folding over and pinning in place the original stitched crutch piece on the front.
Adjust the crutch and pin all the way lengthwise, both front and back. Stitch on the right side, cut the excess fabric 
on the inside of the skirt and that is it. 
There are several options for the hem. You can either turn the skirt inside out, fold the hem as much as you like, and
then iron it. On the other hand, you can also sew a lace on the hem, and have your daughter have the prettiest 
denim skirt with a touch of delicate lace. Sew in two hearts from two different fabrics, and add some buttons on 
the front for the final touch. 

Revamp the Pants

One of the best things you can do with kids’ old pants that run short is to refashion them and make a completely 
new pair of pants. All you will have to do is add a couple of decorating supplies and make some alterations. 
Namely, choose the pants that no longer fit length of your kids’ legs, and cut or just double fold the hem of the 
pants. Sew in the hems on both sides of the leg, to prevent unfolding during the wash. Take the decorating 
supplies and attach them to pants. 
For example, you can have buttons in various colours, and have them sew in the back of the pants, right on the 
back pockets. Now your kid has a completely new pair of short pants, perfect for the spring and summer time. 
Furthermore, Brilliant reflective tape is the best decoration to a kid’s clothes, and it serves an even better 
purpose. It is reflective, and your kids will be seen even in the darkest night.


Leggings Upgrade

The perfect way to glam-up the old leggings is to add a bit of lace to them. Depending on the colour of 
leggings, use the complementary shade to make it look stylish. Cut a triangle out of a stretchy lace, put it at the 
bottom opening of the leggings and it will perfectly taper in as it goes up the leg. Sew it in as long as you think it 
is ok. It can go all the way to the knee, or you can just have it a little bit under the calf. Hand stitch the lace to the 
bottom of the legging, on the inside; add a couple of stitches up the legging and you are all done.  
These few DIY tricks will help you glam-up your kid’s clothes, and save some money on shopping. They will love 
it, and for some time, you will have a piece of mind when it comes to their wardrobe.
