    My daughter asked me to sew fall pants for my granddaughter age 2. She grew out of her Nature Walk pants. Last winter I made her lined Sandbox pants but my daughter does not like the drawstring and they seem to be roomier even when I lined them. This summer I made her seersucker Sketchbook shorts and I really like the fit. Can I lengthen the legs of the Sketchbook shorts with the Sandbox pants pattern? I have lightweight corduroy fabric for early fall. I know I should just try it, but I want to ask if one of you tried this, because I don’t want to waste this fabric.

    This would be my most used pattern!

    I make my Twins Sketchbook ‘pants’ but I lengthened the pattern by laying a pair of existing trousers over the pattern and folded the pattern to follow and lengthened that way.

    I am not sure about the Sandbox pattern…do you mean as a length guide?

    I was thinking of using the Sandbox leg pattern from above the knee down to the ankle. But I can use an existing pair of pants like you suggested. I take a look at your pants on Flicker. Thank you
