My t-shirt just needed to leave my closet.  You know, the one you like, but just did not fit quite right.  In this case it was just too long.  To make me feel better about it I recycled it into pants for Jenna!  I traced another pair of her leggings to make the pattern.  The pants were a bit short, so I added a ruffle from one of the girls' old knit dresses that I was saving. Put ribbon on top of my ruffle, added a waistband and there you have it.  Jenna wanted a matching shirt, so I cut a heart out of the same dress knit and sewed it on.  Outfit complete.  Now, before you go thinking I am super woman, and that these pants are perfect...well, one pocket (on the bum) is about 1inch lower then the other one.  Opps!  

"Mommy this is my favorite outfit, just cause you made it."  Sweet words from a sweet little girl.

Cute! And a good way to recycle both the t-shirt and the dress. I'll have to give this a try.

Do! They are fun and easy to make. I will have to post some pj pants that I made Jackson that were made of of many different t-shirt scraps -- with seams exposed. Love simple free projects that get put to use -- it is like a triple win!
