I sew alot and turn girls shirts into adult ones along with shorts, lap neck shirts...etc. The thing is I got pretty good at sewing the last couple years and hate to throw out my stuff. I will go through a phase where I say goodbye everything then at some point try get it all back. Hell I can make a size 3t gerber toddler pant fit an adult with the peva liner. Once you learn to sew the sky is the limit.
FOE plastic pants a breeze but I prefer cased elastic. I just see things and say I can make that work then where to put all the crap becomes the problem.
