Not sure if many of you know, but my youngest is ‘iddy biddy’ and we have problems getting clothes to fit her. She has long legs and a tiny waist, for a seven year old. So she tends to grow out of clothes quickly in the leg, but not so quickly n the waist. She eats lots but just doesn’t seem to put any weight on. Well seeing as we are coming up to Summer I thought that I would utilise a pair of grown out of jeans and make something she could wear.
Firstly I cut them into a pair of shorts, but she always seems to look too tom boyish and I thought them a little too boring.
As you can see.
So I raided my material stash, which can I say isn’t actually that big, and thought I could come up with something better,
I found some scrap material and hemmed the bottoms in a contrasting colour
And then I thought, I will add a few prettiness, and after some tweaking and sewing and lace and ribbon, I came up with this!
It took me all night, hence the colour change in the photos!!!
And here is Grace modelling her new old shorts!
I think she likes them!
Still here, not posting much, haven’t got too much to say.
Joined Weight Watchers and lost 6.5 lb in 2 weeks and also been swimming!!!
Will add more when I think of it.
