Purple Flamingos

Sage has a darling pair of pants that have a shirred waist and sweet little bows on the back of the legs. They are lightweight and perfect for summer around here. Sadly, she has almost outgrown them. I decided to try and re-create these sweet little pants and shorten them a bit. I have some super lovely fabric that I had in mind for these pants but I was a bit afraid to cut into it for fear they wouldn't turn out. And so... I turned to my stash and found some purple flamingos to use for my test pair. The shirring of the waist worked amazing. I cut slits up the back of the leg and added a little bow. Perfect pants for running around outside, helping Daddy with the wood pile and proclaiming "Sagie so tough!"
