Reuse girl’s clothes and make a skirt

You will need: one pair of pants your daughter has outgrown and one shirt that your daughter has outgrown.

Cut the pant legs off just above the knee, this allows for a seam allowance. Either pick the inner leg seams open or cut them off. I cut. Smooth out the pants and you will now have a pant triangle that is open on the inside, kind of like a letter “A”.

Cut each half of the shirts apart and slide a piece into the “A” and measure to fit. Sew the shirt to the legs.

As you can see the skirt is rather pointy in the front so cut and hem that.
