Children grow out of clothing so fast, it's handy to have some sewing skills to repurpose some of our discarded clothing for them. This camisole 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 keeping it out of landfill!
