If At First . . .

Well, the first pair of ruffled capri pants did not fit. Not by a long shot. Sherry said, "I couldn't get them over her thighs!" Not to worry; her friend Kate expects a baby girl any time now, so those pants can go directly to that new little one.

Saturday night we measured Caroline and measured a pair of pants that fit her.


Tonight I dug through my minimal stash and found some terrific left over Laurel Burch and tried another pair, two sizes larger. If they turn out to be too big, I figure Carrie is more likely to grow than to shrink, right? There wasn't quite enough of the animal print to do the ruffle, but there was a terrific coordinate in that box.

If these are a go, then I'll be ready to start the next patterns! Oh, what fun!

Just love these trousers - wouldn't it be great if adults could get away with wearing kids style clothes

There's nothing more familiar to me in trying to fit babies in children. I always say there are two sizes: too big and too small! Good luck with the next pair, they are double cute!

That should have been "babies AND children" LMBO!
