Thanks Rockstar Mom, it's a shame about your icon. Undecided

Sweetpickles, we're in Australia so we're going into winter, but I'm waitting for the end of season sales so I can buy full length pants for capris. That'll save me a lot of time!

That's very clever! I'd never have thought of that on my own.

Hopefully she'll have caught up by puberty (she's a preemie) so I wont have to keep altering her pants forever.

DD is a string bean, she's 67cm/26in long but only 6kg/13lbs so I'm finding that we need bigger sized pants for the length but they're way to big around the waist. I've pretty much stopped buying pants for her in preference to making them but we've been given a lot of things that are too pretty to just not use. I've already thought of pulling the elastic tighter but it's sewn flat into the casing so that wont work. A friend suggested cutting the original elastic off and sewing a new casing for a new waistbands but that makes the pants too short (difficult aren't I?). Does anyone have any other ideas?

Thanks in advance Cheesy

:lol: I've never heard that expression before!

I second the empire line suggestion. They seem to be in fashion at the moment too (if that matters to you).

Did you use any interfacing with the green dress? If not what kind of hem (if any) did you use to prevent fraying on the inner layer?

I'm attempting to sew two layers of polar fleece but my sewing machine isn't picking up the bobbin thread on each stitch (some it does, others it doesn't). It works fine with other fabric and even if I add an extra piece of fabric under the polar fleece. I've rethreaded the top stitch and the bobbin. Cleaned the bobbin case and even changed the bobbin thread and the needle but no luck. Does anyone have any ideas??
