This is my little Ms Foxy. I think she’s adorable! I decided to try refashioning some of her older brothers pants into shorts for her.
This what we started with. A pair of pants that never actually fit Joshua. Way too big in the waist.
The first thing I did was remove the pocket, so I could change it to a back pocket. It’s hard to see but there is some red stitching going across the pocket on both sides of the white.
Next I trimmed the shorts to the old pocket seams and hemmed the legs.
I took some of the pleated ribbon I used on the headbands and stitched down the center of the ribbon. I made sure there was a little hanging over on each end so that I could wrap the ribbon around to the back of the pocket and not worry about loose ends sticking out or fraying ribbon.
I’ve always wanted to take an up-close sewing picture. I positioned the pocket on the back and sewed it on, following the old seam lines.
I added some rhinestones to the red ribbon tags on the front to try and girl it up a bit more.
Here is my cute little model. Poor thing, I had to tuck in her shirt so you could see her bling.
Here is another pic of her rosette headband.
Now I am asking for help. I think the shorts could use a little something extra. I am stumped though. I’d LOVE any ideas.
