Refashion: Boy Shorts to Little Girl Skirt

Sorry...I feel like I am hogging. I am finally getting some time to catch up.

I pulled these shorts out of Buddy's drawers a couple of weeks ago. I LOVE these shorts. They are so cute. However, I was sad to see that they were a size 2 and no longer fit my 4 year old boy. So I tried them on my 2 year old. They fit her perfectly. I also love these shorts because they have those nifty adjustable elastic waistbands like gap pants. Anyways, the shorts looked cute on my little girl, but they were rather tomboyish looking so I figured I could make them into a skirt. And that is what I did. Here is the end result. And of course I had to add a ruffle -just for good girly meausre.



  1. I love it! I've never thought about refashioning before. It's a new concept to me, but really quite neat!

  2. Hey mar, I ran across this blog the other day and it made me think of you. It's refashioning old fashioned women's clothing (from thrift stores) into trendy women's clothing. Thought you might find it interesting.
