My daughter is growing at a fantastic rate. So after putting her in her jeans and finding out they looked like highwaters, I had to do something.

Enter the rainbow. She is all about the rainbow lately and I had some extra purple and rainbow fabrics after making her birthday dress.

So I added the rainbow fabric to the cuffs for length then added a purple ruffle, just cause it's girly. But to make sure it didn't look "homemade" and instead looked "handmade" I added a rainbow belt (that attached with velcro so we don't have to worry about potty emergencies) and a hand stitched a heart patch on one of the rear pockets.

And I got this:

And here is what they looked like before, plain jeans, well as plain as black glitter jeans can be anyway.

What a great idea!  Wish I'd thought of it when my kids were younger.

Nice job.  I like the belt, it does help pull it together.  And it's rainbow, so it will go with everything!
