The top
Pattern: 5K Tee by Elliedactyl (pattern is free with a code once you join their Facebook Group)
Materials: Camisole from Walmart, $1, leftover fabric from a black skirt from the thrift store
Notes: I love this pattern for repurposing. It uses a technic called color-blocking, which allows you to use scraps and unusually shaped cuts of fabric. This pattern used a neckband, which is pretty common in knit tops. Just sew slow and pin often. This top is great because it can be used for boys and girls. Boys often get left out of the sewing pattern game. 🙁

The bottoms
Pattern: Romperalls by Peek-a-Boo Pattern Shop (pattern is free after joining Facebook group or their newsletter)
Materials: thrift store knit skirt, $3.25, snaps
Notes: This is a harem style pant with a partial lining. The leg seams are super easy. I’m giving this on 3 thimbles simply because of the snaps. This is also a great unisex pattern.
