A Little Earth Day Sewing - Scalloped Hem Gauchos

Craftiments:  Girls' gauchos refashioned from adult clothing

This past weekend I spent a few hours recycling old clothes into fun spring gauchos for the girls.

Miss Imp's pants were made out of Grandma's gingham skirt.  This was my first attempt at sewing a scalloped hem and I am pleased with how nice they came out.  Figuring out the scallop pattern took some time, but sewing them up was a breeze.

The main fabric on Miss JuJu's gauchos came from Daddy's dress shirt.  My husband has the bad habit of not wearing a lab coat and ends up with stains and tiny acid holes in many of his shirts. But it's not a total loss because I can usually salvage enough fabric to make something for one of the girls.
