I made some pants for my daughter and my niece. They are both a difficult fit due to having very large thighs. So, I made two styles of pants that worked better for their thigh issues.
I made these tiered pants. They ended up super cute. (The top is Mayfly's Smocket. http://www.themayfly.com/weblog/2007/02/happy_smocket.html)
And then I also made some of these super easy wide leg ruffle pants. (The hedgehog ones are about a size 7 and the pink/cupcake ones are about an 18 month size.)
