Sewing pants and leggings

My daughter runs a bit on the narrow side, so much so that typically only buttonhole elastic adjustable pants fit her. The problem? She lives in jeans and pajamas and wants to have soft pants and leggings.

The solution?- I need to make her some šŸ™‚

We hit the thrift store together to buy clothes to deconstruct for our fabric needs. I also hit the Internet to figure out how to size things to fit her tall, skinny frame.

After a bit of pattern making, we have a finished pair of green linen pants that she loves and 2 pairs of leggings that are not yet finished.

Here she is modeling a pair of leggings pre- deconstruction, lol.

Here are some in progress and the finished pants waiting to be pressed.
