Fashion Recycling Week: Day 5 (Long-sleeved shirt + saggy pants into a new summer outfit)

It’s Friday, guys! Thanks for sticking with me through Fashion Recycling Week. (If you have absolutely no interest in re-purposing old kiddie clothes, then I’m sorry for bombarding you with my hodge-podge of projects. I think I get overexcited by my rotary cutter!)
