Snowball Effect.

I shouldn't be joking about snow.  There is some in the forecast for this week!

It all started with a pair of pants that were too short.  Charlotte liked these pants and they fit well everywhere else, so I decided to sew a ruffle to the bottom of the legs to add some length.  I went to the fabric store and found the perfect fabric.  The print matched some embroidery on the pants and looked great with them.  The fabric was gorgeous.  I decided that it would be a shame to waste the pattern on a tidbit of trim at the bottom of some pants.

This led me to the pattern books.  I found a cute summery baby doll top that would do the trick.  (The fabric store loves customers like me!)

A quick little job turned into an afternoon, evening and morning and another afternoon of work.  I am pretty sure Charlotte's dolly is going to get a dress out of the leftover fabric. 


All of this work just to make some pants a bit longer.

It was SO worth it!
