They're Lovely Rita Skinnies from Shwin & Shwin. I cut up an old pair of stretchy red chords of mine. They weren't a great fit anyway - well worth the sacrifice. For various reasons, I've taken on some more involved and time consuming projects lately. That's not my preference...I like a quick reward...concept to cut to piece to complete in a couple of hours or days. These are definitely a super rewarding and (relatively) quick sew. This was such a refreshing project.
I made the smallest size available based on the measurement chart and they're still a little big (the hem is folded in one extra time in these pictures). I was a little concerned about it at first but as she wore them I decided they're not so big they look oversized, and they'll probably afford us just enough growing room to get her through the winter.
These and the rest that I will inevitably be making!
