Getting Stuff Done

Enter orders for 2 Girl Scout troops for Fall Nut Sales? DONE

Spend day at learning co-op as supervisor? DONE

Watch Star Trek DVD on the day it was released? DONE (and currently watching it again)

Call guy about adopting rats? DONE

Slap together a pair of pants when I suddenly notice that all of Annabeth's are too short? DONE

Ottobre 6/2009 #17 "Neat Beat" slim fit pants, out of light-to mid-weight stretch denim (2% lycra) from JoAnns.

In spite of the slim fit I ended up tracing 134 length and 128 width ... and the waist was still too big. I took it in about a centimeter on each side, and took about 1.5 to 2 cms off the length of the elastic. This is why we didn't rush out and buy new pants, by the way -- the ones in the store won't fit, so why bother.

I faced the yoke with some cotton left over from another project -- I thought it would be smoother on her skin.

The next pair will be out of corduroy. And she'd like pockets.

I'm so not ready to start sewing pants but we have a similar problem. My 4 is wearing size 7 and that works in shorts, but not in pants.
