This is getting a little ridiculous

Night before last Bryan had a major homework assignment that kept us up pretty late.  While I was trying to wait up with him, I thought I'd give Rae's newborn baby pants a try.  I figured it might do well to cleanse the palate of my recent failures in trying to sew for Olivia if I just made something cute that wasn't for her at all--just for some cute imaginary newborn baby.

Here's the result:

And you know what?  It totally did cleanse my sewing-child-size-clothes palate.  I finished them with a big happy sigh of relief that they turned out just as adorable and pint-sized as I'd hoped.  And it was refreshing to know that they wouldn't have to fit Olivia.

But a funny thing happened.


They do fit Olivia.

Yes, that's right.  These newborn size pants fit my little 14 month old.  (Happy 14 month birthday today, Olivia!)  Ha.  I think she does it just to mess with me.  Well, they are, of course, major high waters on her so I'll need to add a few inches in the future, but they fit her perfectly around the waist.  Sheesh.

So ever since I made this pair I've been itching to make some more, this time long enough for the big O.  But today our apartment is messy messy messy.  And every dish in our apartment the dishes *ahem* need to be washed.  So this is one of those days where I really should be cleaning, but all I want to do is retreat back into my bedroom and sew.  Wish me luck.



And a happy Wednesday to you all.  :)

Those are so cute! I hope the dishes didn't/don't take long to do.

The only thing cuter would be a photo of these darling britches ON Olivia!

How cute, Katie! Our little ones are rather skinny too. I think our eldest, even though he is almost six, still fits in a waist size for a two or three year old. I am sure your little girl looks adorable in those!

I love the little tag on the pants! They are cute all the way around. Great job!

So are you doing Nablopomo undercover style? Very sneaky. No one will know.

I think its funny/coincidental that your sewing machine is in your bedroom. Thats where I kept mine for a long, long time, but now I have a sewing room. and I MISS having it in my bedroom! I never had a mending pile because I mended as I dressed myself and family. Now I have a whole basket, piled to the sky with mending :/
