Easter snuck up on me this year so the family’s outfits were a combination of what we already had in our closets + what I found at Target + a few refashioned items from my large stash of thrifted “supplies”.
The boys each got a new, handmade tie. Baby Brother’s bow tie was made out of a thrifted plaid skirt and Big Brother’s tie was refashioned from a thrifted men’s tie–just shortened and made skinny. Refashioned ties are probably my favorite, quick projects for my little guys (especially since I can usually find awesome ties at the thrift store for only $1).
Baby Brother also got a new pair of pants refashioned from a thrifted pair of men’s blue-striped, polyester slacks. These slacks were straight out of the 70′s and had so much stretch to them, they may be the most comfortable pair of little boys dress pants ever made.
Target supplied us with Pumpkin’s cute, aqua dress and Princess’s adorable peplum top. The yellow skirt was from my stash of thrifted treasures and fit her waist perfectly. It just needed about 12 cut off the bottom. It’s a bit of a shame the peplum top covered the belt detail, but I have a feeling this skirt will get a lot more wear out of it beyond Easter.
