Taller and Taller

Friday, March 7th, 2014

Last Fall I got frustrated with buying pants for Emmie only to bring them home and realize that they were too big in the waist and too short in the leg. So, I started sewing for her. It’s just as crazy as it sounds. But, I made 2 pairs of leggings for her that fit pretty well and then this winter I made 3 pairs of fleece pants that fit perfectly.

Here is a weird picture of her green leggings. I made the 2T (2 year old) size and added 4 inches to the bottom. Yes, she is 3 years old. You can see that the length is fine but not great.

She wouldn't pose

Today it was finally warm enough for her to wear leggings again so I pulled out the green pair only to realize that she’s grown 2 inches since I made these. Also, the waist is still a little too big. Luckily, I still have a lot of this green. I will be whipping up a new pair of 2T leggings with 6! inches added to the bottom. Good grief!

Now if only I hadn’t broken my last needle. I guess I’ll have to go to the sewing shop. Poor me!
