More from our thrifty back-to-school wardrobe! I mentioned that I had picked up a few adult-sized shirts that I wanted to refashion for Eva and this is one of them. Buying adult shirts is a little bit tricky because they’re usually priced higher than kid shirts, but if you find something you love for the right price it can be worth it. I saw this Disney shirt on the Juniors rack and loved the colors and the fuzzy Bambi on the front.
This redo is super simple – I basically just took the shirt apart at the seams and cut it down using one of Eva’s other shirts as a guide. I barely changed anything stylewise on the shirt. The only change I really made was that I flared the hem of the shirt and pulled it as I stitched it so that it would pucker. I saw something similar in a kid’s store a while back and wanted to experiment. Verdict: love it! It’s just different enough to make the t-shirt interesting.
The whole outfit Eva is wearing in the photos came in at $8:
- Cap: $1
- Shirt: $3
- Skinny jeans: $2
- Legwarmers: $1
- Boots: $1 (picked up at a garage sale earlier this summer)

(Note: It also cost me 25 cents to get these photos because Eva needed to be bribed into taking a break from Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood to pose. Poor put-upon child of a blogger.)
