Too-small stretch pants make fine capri pants
I love that Jamie's daughter's wearing "hand-me-ups"!
I know everyone is looking for ways to save money, especially families with kids. I have to give credit for this hack to my three year old daughter. She is really expressing her independence by choosing her own clothes and dressing herself each day. The other day she put on her sister's pants (size 12 mo). Sasha wears a size 2T-3T, but these 12 mo pants worked wonderfully for capri pants for her, and they aren't too tight around the waist, just a little short. This is going to save us some money by being able to give these pants a second life.
Wonderful. I've found the same is true for cotton play dresses. Once they're too short, they're perfect as flowy tops over leggings or jeans (or, if you're my frill-loving daughter, another skirt).
