|You can use clothes that she already wears as patterns ;D you can also visit www.youcanmakeit.com (no, I am not affiliated and not compensated) lol I spend mega bucks there. heheheheheheeheee ;D the ruffles to pants are fairly easy. measure the length you will need to make your fabric strip by measuring round the cuff. and add 1 to 1.5 inches. go ahead and seam the side that will not be attached (this makes it easier to have a nicer finish without being such a witch ;D ) hehe then sew the ends together so you have a tube. run a long basting stitch across the top where it will be attached to the jeans. ;D Then put the right side of the cuff to the right side of the jeans (you will match the unfinished edge on the fabric with the hem of the jeans ) ;D ehehehe sorry for the longwinded explanation but some people need it ;D I know I did when I first started!||

Here's a website that gives instructions on how to make a t-shirt dress, the example uses a onsie, but you can use any size shirt.
I believe I actually got this link from this forum awhile ago. Good luck. Hope you post pictures!
