I've been getting fall & winter clothes ready for my little Ms, in hopes that cooler temps will be arriving all the sooner:) Both kids are growing like weeds but Livy just transitioned to the next size...which is great, except that long sleeve shirts and trousers are now drooping on her a bit:/
Enter DIY alterations!
On a long sleeved knit dress, I simply rolled the cuff inside the sleeve to the appropriate place...
...stitched around, leaving a gap to add some 1/4 inch elastic and sealed everything up!
***Don't forget to use your stretch needle for knits!!!
As you can see, someone wasn't cooperating while trying to take pictures...
...and got a major case of the sillies...
...but hopefully you can see that her sleeves are no longer hanging past her little hands!
This dress is still a smidgeon big so I left a bit of room in the sleeves and made my alterations 'temporary' and easy to undo for when Pnut grows more:)
We were both pretty chuffed and now I just have about another 8 tops to go...and then leggings!
Yeah for free:)
Thanks for stopping by,
