Anyone know of a great pattern for toddler denims?  My daughter is chunky and add that to cloth diapers, and most jeans don't fit properly, even if I size up or try unisex/boys jeans.  The best fit in any jeans is sadly from Walmart, and I'm trying to minimize any shopping I do there.  I can easily modify a pattern, but I kind of wanted one to work from.  TIA!

Wait, where did those come from?  I swear I didn't go to the craft store, honest!

Lurker here with a suggestion.

I bought Burda 9645 this weekend. This pattern is for size 6 months to 3T. Since it includes the baby size, maybe it will be appropriately fitted for diapers. Hope this helps.

Not a whole lot of help from the sewing side...but I know at either the Children's Place or Gymboree they have different tot and kids sizes (slim/reg/i don't really know what they call the larger size?) if that'd help!  You could always check there and find a pair you like and base your own pattern off it.  Otherwise a good ol' elastic waist pants pattern in a stretch denim...  Sorry if that wasn't much help  Undecided

Can you buy just one pair of jeans from walmart, rips the seams apart, and use it as a pattern for non walmart purchased jeans?

If I'm buying pants I actually want her to wear them.  I can get patterns fairly cheap from my LFS, but the jeans are more than twice that.

Maybe trace them into a pattern and sew them back together?

I have Kwik Sew's book for babies and it has lots of room for cloth diapers in the patterns. Maybe try the toddlers book?

Thanks for the suggestions, I will keep looking.  I found a butterick pattern, and am going to give it a whirl.

I'd say you don't need a pattern too ... trace a pair bigger where you know she needs it and use elastic at the top. Think pajama bottoms ... they are not hard to make. Otherwise if she has some that are too tight ... you could try to take apart the sides and either put in a strip of denim or some cotton fabric to make them bigger. You could glam them up with ruffles.
Good luck!
