A second pair of sucessful pants! It is always nice to know the first time you make something isn't just a fluke. These turned out even better than the first pair I think.
And they just happen to match a certain skirt, if you are in to the whole super ruffle-y boutique-y look, which apparently this child is all about as of five minutes ago.
I tried to convince her to let me shorten the ruffles until they are more like a trim (like the next picture) but she is having none of it. She says I can make her another pair to be capris with a short ruffle. Sigh.
These pants were made from an old shirt, so after I was done I was looking at the sleeves I had whacked off the shirt trying to think of something to do with them, leg warmers maybe? Then it came to me...
Lucy the webkinz deer happened to be sitting on my sewing table in a cute purple webkinz-wear skirt, so I chopped off the end of a sleeve and whipped up my own skirt version. The youngest child took Lucy to the bus stop and told all the other moms that I made Lucy's skirt. She was so proud. And yes, bus stop ladies, I spent my day making a reindeer a skirt.
