I couldn’t dart or take in the sides of these shorts because the front pocket was way to close to the side seam. So, I did this easy fold/sew technique and now Beck doesn’t have to hold them up and I don’t have to roll the waist down. Then when he does grow into them..I can just seam rip the sides I sewed…a whole new pair of bigger shorts! Great temporary way to take in kid’s pants! I might have to do this to a ton of his shorts…I went to the doctor for Beck today, he is in the 10 percentile in weight…so dang skinny.
I’m loving his new sunnies from gymboree. The awesome thing is, he loves wearing them.
