Blink! Your kid just outgrew an article of clothing...
Blink again! Yep, there’s goes another piece.
Am I right?
Don’t stress about it, because for one... it’s inevitable, and two... you can actually get so much more use out of their clothing than you think. There are countless ways to reuse and refurbish items in your kids’ wardrobes and all you need is a pair of scissors and a few spare minutes.
1. Chop joggers, leggings, and jeans into cut-offs for the summer: If your kids are anything like my active 4-year-old, you’re aware of how often the knees of their pants get warn out, so chopping them into shorts will have you get use of these items through the spring and summer months. I also do this with pants that Hudson has outgrown in length.
*In a past blog post, I elaborate more on how to distress denim items yourself. It’s quick, it’s easy to pull off, and the compliments on your kids’ outfits will be endless. Click here.
2. Cut long sleeve tees, tops and denim jackets into vests: Those fall and winter items, like plaid shirts and button downs can be converted into stylish vests in just a few minutes. You can then layer them with tees underneath to dress up any look.
3. Crop the bottoms and chop the tops of PJ sets: You will instantly have summer PJs and won’t need to invest in new ones for the warmer months.
Reconstructing options for clothing items are endless, and you’ll save a ton of money because the articles you buy can literally be used for all seasons.
