When our friend took some family photos of us last summer, Sis wore the sweetest little aqua and yellow ruffled romper.
But the 18-24 month size outfit isn’t quite jiving with her tall, almost-three-year-old self…
…So it is time for a quick makeover!
The construction is pretty simple, just a white bodice with the ruffles layered on. The arm openings are still plenty big, so this romper was a prime candidate to become a top!
My plan was to cut the romper off right under the lowest row of ruffles (the yellow fabric) and make it into a shirt.
Well, that took all of twenty seconds.
And since the cut part is completely covered by the yellow ruffle, and because I used my pinking sheers to cut off the bottom, I didn’t even bother hemming.
And there you have it: easiest upcycle ever!
Oh! And how marvelous does this “new” top look with the pants I made recently?
So, have you ever made-over a piece of clothing? Do tell!
