Clothing Remodel: Jumper into a Skirt

I found several of these jumpers on clearance at The Children's Place. I wasn't really crazy about the jumper, but I loved all the ruffles on the skirt. Another thing I didn't like was that the size 5/6 was almost too short on her. I meandered around the story for awhile trying to rack my brain what I could do with the jumpers, especially since they were sale for around $4 a piece. Finally, it hit me that if I cut off right at the top of the underarms that I could sew it down, run a piece of elastic through it and voil√† I would have a skirt.

When I brought them home Delani wanted it as a jumper and I let her wear one of them. I finally got around to trying my idea and thankfully it work. When Delani saw it as a skirt she quickly brought back the one she had worn and told me she wanted that made into a skirt, too. It didn't take much time. I spent more work ripping out a small part of the side seams where a tie belt was sewn in than in putting in casing for the elastic.  I completed a black and gray skirts and have a navy and hot pink ones to finish. The best part is that Delani loves her new skirts and they look too stinking cute!
