These were a very last minute Christmas gift that I whipped together the night before. They were made using the remnants from my
leather pyjama pants. The chambray fabric is pretty boring but ever so soft and comfortable. She had just torn her very last pair of long summer pants, which were just so practical (as well as protective for those little knees which keep hitting the pavement). I used a pattern from one of my Japanese pattern books that I had sewn before. But instead of using elasticised cuffs, I shortened them and added ruffles.
Her Christmas shoes are at least a size too big but she insisted on wearing them and who am I to argue with a two year old. She especially loves the pockets in her new pants.
