My Girl grows taller quite frequently but her girth is not increasing much, which means we often have pants that look like Pedal pushers or that are long enough but in danger of falling down falling down. These two pairs were from last winter and still fit in the waist, the purple pair got paint on them in the room redo.
I cut a length off the purple pair at the cuff and a section from the leg above it the purple pair can be play shorts now :) I pinned the purple cuff inside the black leg with a little peeking out adding a tiny bit of length.
I added some broderie and a strip of cute fabric for looks.
I cut the black pair at where I estimated knees might be and added the purple strip in. Now she is the proud owner of a pair of 'fancy pants' that fit - for a little while
Sorry about these grainy dark pics. I'll try and get some better ones and swap them later today :)
Thats just one of the things have been up to in my creative space this week!
