It’s been cold and snowy lately here – basically like everywhere else in the country! The girls have plenty of dresses and skirts, but are lacking in pants. To make my point – A friend noticed Bridget wearing jeans at preschool the other day and shockingly said, “I’ve never seen Bridget wear jeans – ever!” This is the second year that Bridget and her daughter have been in class together. So with nighttime dance and swimming classes I figured some comfy pull on pants were in need. I finished Lucy’s pair and got her to model a little and I’m in the middle of making Bridget’s. I had to seriously bribe Lucy to put these on at first.
Now she’s thinking they are pretty cool.
I used this tutorial from Prudent Baby and it worked out great. I did tweak a couple of things. Since I used sweatpants material (LOVE) I didn’t have to hem any seams. Which means I just cut and sewed – love it. And I did add a couple of ruffles to the bottom because I thought it would be cute. I used a shoelace, cordlock and grommets for the waist like we do in our Playdate Skirt. I may have made them a little too “low rider” because there was a moment in church during the children’s message where she was up in front and I’m pretty sure I saw some butt crack showing – seriously embarrassing :). BUT, I will remember that and make sure to make Bridget’s a little differently :). I’m now trying to figure out how to make some for myself – because seriously here – they are made with sweatshirt material in a houndstooth pattern and sparkles – enough said.
