I found this cute ballerina fabric in the remnant bin at JoAnn's awhile ago. "Just enough to make Evie a pair of pajama pants!" I thought, and you really can't beat getting a pair of pants for under $2.
But after I washed the fabric and got it on grain, there was only enough fabric if I cut the leg a little too short. So I did thinking I would make them into capris. But I was only a smidgen too short! Not even a full inch! Arrgh!! Then I had a brilliant thought. I bought some satin blanket binding and sewed it on instead of hemming the pant legs. Adorably cute, and if I hadn't told you otherwise you would have thought it was just a design decision I had made... right?
