Mens shorts to kids top and skirt - day 12 clothes upcycling challenge

Today's upcycle was to use up a pair of shorts my husband no longer wanted:

Add a bit of white t-shirt leftover from this t-shirt dress I made last week:

Then I made a little top...

And a mini sarong..

One for each daughter this time!

Very nice! 
What do you think?
