Last week I picked up a cute little girls' two-piece outfit at Walmart for $7. It was size 8 -- obviously way too big for JellyBean -- but I had some refashioning in mind!!
Here's the first half of the refashion:
I cut them away from the skirt as close to the seam as possible.
I sewed another line of stitching around the hem of the shorts. I was careful to make the distance between the original hem's stitching line and my new stitching line just the width of a safety pin.
On the inside, right next to the inseam, I snipped a little hole in between lines of stitching, then used a safety pin to thread 1/4" elastic through.
I folded down the top raw edge of the shorts and sewed to create a casing. I used 3/4" elastic, although if I'd had 1/2" elastic on hand I would have used it instead!
Ta-Da!! Super quick little bloomers with cutie little ruffly leg openings!
I then put the skirt on JellyBean, up around her chest, and measured how much I would need to take out to make it into a little top. I sewed, then cut away the excess. I used the scrap to create two little straps -- which ended up being the perfect length!
I marked them for placement and sewed them in place on the inside of the top.
You are an amazing refashioner! Its very cute.
wow! cute overload, good job!

Adorable!! I hadn't thought of sizing outfits down... oh the possibilities...
She looks SUPER CUTE!!! And I like that it's an easy outfit to get on and off :) Those bloomers are adorable.
So sweet! Love the revamp. I wish I could romp around in bloomer and halter dress.
Such a cutie in her new summer re-fashioned outfit!
