On the jeans I made sure they had adjustable waists or at least good loops for belts. But on the tights there were no such option. Needless to say all her pants fell down around her knees the first day she wore them and she was somewhat frustrated when she came home from school. Though I must admit it was pretty funny when her pants fell down while at the playarea at the mall.
My mom and I decided that it was time to redo the elastic in the waists on all the tights. We snipped the waistband open and threaded with new elastics. So much better now, but then she didn't like the little knot that we had made in the back. It hurts mamma...
Now the pants have been on my sewing table for almost a month for me to sew the elastic together. It is just not getting done. I do have a feeling though that I will have to put it on my to do list for today as she just told me her closet is empty for pants and she just has dresses left. Can't let her wear dresses when it is raining and I really do not feel like doing laundry.
Finally my to do list for today is
get Isabel to school, biblestudy group for me and Sofie, grocery shopping, sewing, cooking and baking.
Should be a great day as these are all things I actually enjoy doing, but have been putting off for so long.
That took me 20 minutes.
