Inspiration: Super Simple Leggings from Make It-Love It!
What I made: Toddler Long John Bottoms
It's cold!!! Time to dig out the thermals...but I needed to make some for the kiddies. I began my search for a old pair of thermals or sweatpants that I could upcycle into toddler ones. Luck! I found this pair of long john bottoms that were my husbands. They don't fit him anymore, and they don't fit me either...and they're not my style or colour.
I began to look for a template, and I knew that Make It & Love It has a great post about leggings for kids. I used this as my template for the thermal underwear. I won't leave a tutorial here, because I followed the post's instructions, with two exceptions:
- I hand sewed the thermals; the kids were up and little C is severely afraid of loud noises. Seriously...she gets physically ill every time I use the vacuum cleaner.
- I also gave the thermals a wider leg, because I liked the look of them.
You can get one set of thermal bottoms out of an adult pair. Here is the finished product, modeled on my son:
