No like!!

That's the response whenever I try to get the smallest child to wear these pants!

It doesn't seem to matter that they have pockets, which she loves right now.

Or that they are great to wear when riding your bike.

In fact the day I took these pictures was one of the few times I have been able to convince her to wear them.

Obviously they match the Make It Perfect jacket I made, a little matchy-matchy, but I could live with it, if only she would put them on....

They are cute. I wonder why she doesn't like them? I wonder if you appliqu├ęd a little butterfly or a flower (or a matryoshka doll) on them somewhere, she might change her mind?

She is funny - I like them too... what pattern are they?

Oh wow I love them Karen, what is wrong with that child, doesn't she know she doesn't get a choice yet, she wears what mummy makes.

I too have a child who never wants to wear a favourite pair of pants I made for him I even later added an appique king for him but no still goes straight past them. Quite funny, I guess in the end I've let it go and let him choose what he's comfortable with. I must say yours are some fine looking pants! I'll wear them! (if a lot bigger)!

Really? What's not to like?
They look gorgeous from here.
LOVE that little house too.
Hope things are good with you and your gang Miss Karen. X

I get that too, so heartbreaking! Although my 6 year is much more tactful with "I will wear it tomorrow" unfortunately tomorrow never comes!!

Amanda said...

So funny :) They're the cutest pants ever!

Selina said...

They're gorgeous! Strange child! ;) Which pattern did you use?

Carolyn said...

I like them, whats the fabric and the pattern?

Its funny how the little ones can sometimes make up their mind about things, and with no apparent reason why! I have the most georgeous 'lady bug' looking tops that the girls will not touch!

What's not to like about the pants??

I like it! It looks really cute on her too.

Bek said...

The pants are great! Such a shame the little one "no like". That has happened to me more than once too. One of the risks of sewing for my girl. My boy is more cooperative.

Miss Amy said...

very cute. Perhaps she doesnt want to wear them because she doesnt want pants because princesses wear dresses. :p

I love the little bit of matchy matchy with the jacket :)

Gypsy said...

Wow they're gorgeous Karen! No idea why she wouldn't like them. Maybe try the applique idea? Has she elaborated as to why she doesn't like them?

My daughter wouldn't wear non-stretchy clothes since she was 18 months old. She is now 4 and still doesn't like non stretchy fabric. Now my 16 months started to do the same.

Sally said...

Great pants. They look fab. Love 'em... but I don't think they'll fit me.
