I made some new pants for GranddaughterStitches. It seems she prefers stretchy pants to her blue jeans, and I hope these keep her warm. They went together in a snap--one afternoon. That might have something to do with the fact that it's not the first pair I've made! In December I made her some in a different color, so I guess I did my figuring out then. I did have to lengthen the pant legs several inches, as GranddaughterStitches is tall for her age.
I didn't have any of my cute "Grandma Made It" tags, but I did remember to put a size tag at the back of the waistband. That's important with handmade children's clothes, as they may get passed around, and moms need to know what size they are. These were size 4-5, obviously (!) and I added the "L" to stand for long.
They're all ready to get into the mail now.
