A Reuse

December 13th, 2008 at 04:51 pm

My daughters have a holiday dance/tumbling recital today. They are to wear black pants, capris or shorts with their dance t shirt.

My oldest daughter specifically wanted capris...those are kind of hard to find in the middle of winter!! Youngest daughter wanted to do the same thing. Ugh!

So, yesterday I spent 45 minutes hemming the both pairs of black pants they wore to last years holiday recital into capris!! Free dance wear...can't beat that!!

I would have spent at least $18 on two new pairs from Children's Place. I guess I even saved a trip to the mall!

    Isn't great what a skill like knowing how to hem clothes can save you? WTG!

    Maybe next year they'll want shorts and you can hem again! LOL

    Good for you, I probably would have been running all over town

    What a smart and frugal idea... and I bet the girls looked just as cute as if you'd gone out and spent the $$ to buy new ones.
