Ack! She needs a pair of pants!

Posted on by in Kids, Misc

It will be in the low 60s tomorrow morning when Maeve goes to school. Not quite warm enough for shorts but she has no cheap-enough-for-preschool pants. Most parents would just go to Old Navy or Target and pick something up. I have to make everything more difficult of course. And didn’t remember she had no pants until after dinner tonight.

Sean had rejected a couple of knit shirts that I had bought him and I never got around to returning them. They were sitting on the floor of my room because as a sew-er, I couldn’t throw away what was essentially good fabric. Any guesses what I did? Well, I didn’t have a pants pattern, so I pretty much made her a really long pair of shorts.


So Maeve now has a pair of pants made out of a Hanes Mens T-Shirt. At least I sewed some ribbon on the sides to make them look slightly girly. And the best part? The ribbon matches her uniform t-shirt. Excellent.



Or maybe I should have gone to Target this weekend.
