So last year, a friend gave me some of her old clothes to refashion…. I turned this pair of stretch cord jeans into maternity pants a while back, but the stretch is a little too much, and the maternity aspect makes them fall down. I thought and thought about how to fix them, and then decided just to refashion them entirely. So, this morning, the Bean and I made her a new pair of pants.
Given that she is still wearing her 12- 18m pants as shorts, I just copied a pair of those, and made them way longer. Too long, perhaps, but we cuffed them for today, and as she’s finally growing, maybe they’ll actually fit perfectly soon….
She loved the color, the sound, and the inserting of the elastic (she got to do a lot of that herself, whereas I only let her sit on my lap, no touching, while I sew).
when I ask her to turn around, she insists on doing a full turn, so the best I can do of a backside shot is mid-spin, but then, you don’t really need to look at my daughter’s butt.
All my planning for KCWC is making me itch to sew RIGHT NOW, especially as I don’t know how busy I will be with market stuff next week (right now I’m in a holding pattern, waiting for design decisions….)
