Long Legged Little and the Quick Fix

Doesn't that sound like a great title for a children's book?

Anyway, Little just keeps growing. I got her a couple pairs of pants at the beginning of winter and hemmed them - leaving quite a hem since the elastic in the waist was pulled so tight I knew she'd wear these babies for ages. Here we are five months later and the pants were at her ankles and the elastic was let out one notch. The markings from the hem were awful so I did a little doctoring and tah-dah. . . a couple more months of wear!

Little wore them today and told me, "Oh, they are just beautiful for wearing to school!" Good deal.
