Children grow out of clothing so fast, its handly to have some sewing skills to re-purpose some of our discarded clothing for them. This camilsole was eight inches larger than the little girl, so all I have to do was reduce the size of the original top through pleating. Then I shortened the straps and presto!
I have seen adorable dresses made from men's dress shirts for women and little girls (see http://www.pinterest.com/pin/518828819542538285/ and http://www.pinterest.com/pin/518828819543363333/). The best part of sewing from discarded clothing is that if you make a mistake, you can either rip it out or discard it as originally planned!
