When money is tight, and your kids grow faster then you like, and they are rough on their clothes during the summertime......just re-purpose them back into functional clothes again! I took several pairs of my girls pants that had become to short for pants and cut them off at the bottom to make capri's.
Since these were all knit, I did an easy zigzag technique on the sewing machine to ruffle the new hems of the capri's. They were all finished in less then 30 minutes! So glad they can still wear them!
