Re-using adult clothes into kid's clothes

Hello, Magda E. from House of Estrela here today. 
I still have a couple of refashions to share from last month. Refashioning adult clothes into kids clothes is what I do most. Not because it is easy, but because it is the most pratical thing to do. I have a lot of clothes, and kids grow out of their pretty soon. 
This time, I have something to share that I have refashioned for my niece. 
I took a cardigan (or try on doing one many years ago, that failed and kept there waiting for a use) of mine and resized it to fit my niece. 

I also grabbed a pair of women's shorts, totally deconstructed it to get use of the fabric and sewn her a new pair of skinny jeans (shorts actually).

You have way more patience than I do! Great job on refashioning the two pieces that will gain a few more years of wear and tear.

Kudos to you for making two garments so re-wearable.
