These were my old AE pants. I liked them a lot but they were two sizes too big. I held on to them for pregnancies when my butt grows big and wide and I need bigger pants. I decided I cannot hold on to things and should just make something more useful out of them. Emma needed some transition pants. Her size 6 pants are too long and her size 5 are too short. I made these comfy but still good looking pants for just this purpose.
Because they are 'transition' pants I did not spend a lot of time on them. They have elastic waist and no pockets. It was late last night when I was making them and I decided not to spend more time than needed. She grows like a weed and these pants will probably last her a month or so. Also they are not very warm so when the weather gets colder they go into the warmer clothes storage case.
I still like how they turned out. And the most important thing is that she likes them.
