My daughter needs to grow a bit..

So she picked out a SUPER cute new outfit for the first day of school.  I wasn't paying to much attention but she did pick out an XS.  I didn't have her try it on because I assumed that at 7 (she will be 7 in 2 weeks) and XS would fit.  Well today is the first day of school and she went to get dressed.. That's when we found out her skirt was to big.  UGH.  So I had to pull out the sewing box and fix it for her.


Do I win Mother of the year that one??  Probably not but that's ok.. LOL!!

lol..We have to only buy certain bottoms for our kids b/c they are so narrow in their waist area & have super long legs. All bottoms have to be adjustable.

My cousin can't even sew on a button :) LOL!!  It came in handy at work this summer because a few girls had broken bathing suits so I fixed them before they left to go to the beach.  hehehe

Madison is in that inbetween stage where nothing fits.  The size she wore last year is a little bit tight and well beyond 2 inches above her knee..  and the size bigger is a tad bit bigger than she needs.  So I went with the bigger size.  She'll grow into it.  :)

When I go shopping for my 7yr old daughter she has to try on everything.  Every store is different she wears a 7 or 8 depending on what it is, she's really tall but slim in the waist.  I love the elastic adjuster inside jeans now, they have been a life saver.  I hate skirts because the size that fits her waist is too short and the ones that are the right length are too big in the waist.

But yes you do win mother of the year!!  Great job momma, I'm glad she was able to wear the outfit she picked out for the 1st day!!

I bought my daughter a dress the top material was really light for the heavy "skirt", the skirt would pull the dress down and show off her chest.  I had to fold over the top of the shoulders and sew, I was happy when I was done and couldn't tell I even sewed it! :)

If it would have fit perfect in a month she couldn't wear it any more, so no biggie that it was a little too big :) I always buy my kids the next size up because we will be school shopping again very soon if I don't. I think it is a parenting win on your part that it is a little bigger and the fact that you can fix it to fit now and just undo what you did when it needs to be taken out is a bonus :)

 Hope you can find some stuff that works. It can be frustrating! Ugh...

Me either!  I have a needle and some thread and can sew on buttons, but don't ask me to do anything else.  lol
