THRIFTY TIP: if you sew, take apart an adult’s winter coat and re-cut the material to make a smaller coat for a child.  This works well with mom’s summer dresses that can be “cut down” to shorts, skirts or t-shirts for the children. Cutting down adult clothing to make into children’s clothing is something that goes back as long as there has been clothing. Today, it is finding a resurgence as people look to history for money saving ideas.
