Precocious little Miss M has been growing like a weed! Several pairs of pants she could wear at the beginning of fall are now quite short on her. You know what that means, right? Time to sew!
I already had the Superstretch jeggings (Ottobre 4/2011 #3) in size 116 traced and some denim knit material on hand, so I whipped up a pair (over the course of two days) of new jeggings for her. She's not quite ready for a size 116, but since she just keeps on growing, I'm not concerned.
I also made her a pair of legwarmers from some fun sport weight yarn my mom gave me. I used an easy pattern from Tangled Happy. Since the pattern was written to fit size 7/8, I sized down a little by making my initial chain 37 and continuing for a total of 35 rounds. I also swapped out the pink satin ribbons shown here for some yellow grosgrain ribbon because it stays tied better.
Miss M loves them! And they make a wonderful addition to her wardrobe for those awkward transitional weather days when it's cold in the morning, hot midday, and cold again in the evening.
