I’ve made The Benevolent Dictator three pairs so far and I love them all on her. Tonight she put on the first set and was running off to hug her father when I realized “Wow, those are…. too short?” And then I had a moment of “not possible!” because I know they grow fast but I just made those two months ago. I worked through the stages of omg-my-baby-is-getting-so-big grief and eventually accepted it.
Still, thanks to the genius of this pattern I just called her over, snipped the threads that were holding the cuff of the pants up, and now I think she can enjoy them for another couple of months. Or weeks. Or, let’s be honest, days. Thanks so much Oliver + S for making patterns with a little grow room in them. 🙂
(ooh, an excuse to make more!!)
