My youngest boy is about the same size as my girl. He is growing out of some jeans, but they fit her just fine because she is a string bean. I saw this idea on Pinterest and thought I’d have a go.
I didn’t quite get the ratio right on the ruffles, but she still loved it. It is pretty much a no-brainer. Cut off the jeans just above the crotch. Try to make the cut as straight as possible. Each ruffle should just about double in circumference. I ironed the seam of the jeans up so that it would hang a little straighter and stitched it down.
I am going to try this idea again with a dress I pulled out of her closet that was getting too small for her. It is pretty great raiding closets and coming out with “brand new” clothes. I think this scrapping thing might come in pretty handy!
