Description

My old office dress was transformed into a pair of trousers for my toddler. When he grew, I changed the trousers into shorts and added a bit of length at the top so that his little bits wouldn’t be too tight! The image shown is the final product as shorts :-)

I blogged about it at:

    This is so cute! And a great idea to change something that used to be moms into something for a little guy!
