patchy pants I lengthened back in March using the tutorial from From an Igloo? Well, even with the ruffle extension, those pants are almost too short for Blockette! The child has grown 3 inches this year. Maybe I should stop sprinkling Miracle Grow on her cereal in the morning.
I forced Blockette to try on all her clothes to see if she needed more clothes for school. The verdict was, not yet, but probably in a few months. I did find another pair of pants that could use some lengthening. So I set myself to work.
One hour later. (A new record time for me) Tada! More pants that fit. I just love that ruffle tutorial.
Blockette picked out the ruffle fabric. You can't really tell from the photo but they have little multi-colored t-shirts with hearts on them. I was quite surprised she chose the yellow fabric. I mean I thought the child was all about pink. Guess not today.
As I was attaching the ruffle, I noticed that the knees of these pants are getting thin. I pondered putting on a patch, but decided to wait until an actual hole developed..say after the first day she wears them to school. Why do today what you can put off for tomorrow right?
So I bet you are thinking that I told Blockette some hilarious knock knock joke of some sort. No, she just decided to pose that way for the camera.
