Both my granddaughters are tall and long-legged for their ages. Their pants tend to be too short long before they outgrow the waist size of the garments.
These size 4 jeans belong the 3 year old granddaughter. They have those elastic cinches in the waist and they are drawn up as small as they go and they fit her in the waist OK.
But length wise, they were too short.
So, I gave it a go, seeing if I could lengthen them.
Jean hems are thick and hard to sew over so first I used a seam ripper to unpick that stitching.
Then I pressed the bottom edge flat.
I used a 2 inch strip of brown polka dot fabric folded in half and pinned it to the hem.
I added 2 rows of decorative stitching but it does not show up much. That's OK though, because the stitching finishes off all the seams even if no one can really see it.
Hopefully the 1 1/4 inch in length added will be enough that she can wear these jeans a little longer,
At least until she wears out the knees......
