Extend the life of outgrown dresses as tops and tunics
B said this about her thrifty, wardrobe-extending hack: "I thought this one was fairly obvious but I've gotten stopped by other mothers in stores recently so maybe I'm onto something..."
I re-use my daughter's dresses as shirts or tunics or jumpers as she outgrows them, either through length or season. For instance, right now, she's wearing her summer dresses as jumpers with long sleeved shirts under them. Pair a too-short dress with jeans and you have a cute tunic.
On a typical day around here, my otherwise 24M sized daughter can sometimes be found in a 12M dress-as-shirt, with 18M pants as leggings...
It gives child's your wardrobe a little extra mileage. And it's darn cute, too.
