    Smile Re-designing big brothers clothes for little sister

    Hello!!
    I just wanted to show you some clothes I've re-designed/re-made. I have 1 ds and then 2 dd. Oldest dd isn't very interested in ds's clothes so I had to find ways to make her want to wear them. Here are some examples: http://www.facebook.com/home.php?#!/...4&id=609479480

    If any of you have other ideas like these, please show me your re-design or just tell how you re-use kids clothes!

    Great job! I have 2 sons, then a dd. . . I did the same thing ( and it's lots easier to redo boys clothes for girls, rather than girl's to boy's).

    I added lace to the outer seams of pants/jeans, to the hems of T-shirts. I covered footballs designs with kitten and flower appliques. I addes princess seams to button down shirts, with contrast lace/piping on the edges of collars and pockets.

    Thanks everyone for your kind words and thanks sunshine for great tips. I'll absolutely try the one with the laces!

    I emailed you. I have a son who is 2 1/2 yrs older than my daughter. He is about 1-2 sizes bigger. I will have to see if I can use your idea! I need to get another sewing machine. I gave mine to a family member. Now that I am getting a bigger house I will have room for it again!

    For jeans that fit well except for length, you can sew wide bands of girly fabric to the bottom and sew a matching applique to a tee and create a new outfit. I have also seen really cute loops of coordinating ribbon sewn all the way around shorts' hems to make sort of a ruffle effect. Back pockets are cute places for iron-on patches, sequins, etc, too. Daisies are cute and easy to paint or cut out of fabric.

    You can layer a simple tee or tank with some lace detail under a boy's polo shirt or button-down shirt to create a more feminine look.
