My daughter Isabella, nine, grew too tall for her clothes, but I didn’t want to throw them away. Instead I took an old pair of jeans, cut them down into shorts and hemmed them. Then I stitched the leftover material from the legs on to another old pair of jeans to lengthen them. Now she has a new pair of shorts and some jeans, which both fit her perfectly.
