This weekend Miss P and I went through her dresser to switch out the winter and spring clothes. She tried everything on and we bagged up the items that were too small to wear anymore.
She was pleased that she can still fit into this dress I made her back in August of 2012! That was second grade, folks! Look at what a little peanut she was then. The dress is much shorter on her now but it still fits in the chest and shoulder area.
Her cousin recently sent her a box of handmedowns that included a couple of pair of leggings that she has been wearing with her skirts and dresses. We decided to try converting the tights to leggings.
It was easy as pie. I cut the foot part off and hemmed up the lower edge using a multi-step zigzag stitch on the sewing machine. I used the foot portion to test out which stitch worked best.
