Get More Out Of Your Child's Clothing

Am I the only one who finds it completely ridiculous that children's clothing, although a fraction of the size of adult clothing, is the same price? Then on top of that, they outgrow the clothes in a month. 

Blows my mind!

Well, today I'm going to show you how I get more wear out of my little man's clothes. It works great for long sleeve shirts that you buy for winter {once it's too hot to wear them} and for onesies or rompers {they still fit great minus the major wedgie!}.

This is so easy you'll be wondering why you haven't been doing this all along. The only thing I use that's not pictured is a straight edge to guide my cut. If you don't have a rotary cutter, scissors will work just fine {I would suggest turning the article of clothing inside out and tracing a straight line to use as a guide if cutting with scissors}.

Once you've got your guide set in place all you have to do is cut. Since knits won't fray you don't have to worry about sewing a hem. {When cutting long sleeves I would use a short sleeve shirt as a guide for sleeve length.}

It's like getting a whole new wardrobe for free and I do love free stuff :)

Little man loves trucks so the digger shirt was a big win!
