It always startles us how fast it can go from chilly to hot where we live. The small golden period of “just right” is usually only a few weeks, and then we’re looking at triple digit days! If you’re like us and looking for ways to stretch out your cold weather wardrobes, we’ve got two easy no-sew ideas today.
First take those long sleeve sweaters and tees and turn them into the perfect Summer Tee. Cut the sleeve off at about 3/4th of the way down, roll twice and you’re done!
With crazy growth spurts, we usually find that the boys jeans are getting a little too short in the length even though they just fine in the waist! No need to get rid of them, simply turn them into some cut-off shorts! Tip: for the single fold cut-off, mark the knee caps of the jeans while your kiddo is wearing them for the most precise cut. If you just want a standard frayed cut-off, make your mark just above the knee before cutting.
Do you guys have any great tips for extending winter wardrobes, we’d love to hear!
