Capris for Jeans

Jeans shopping for Averie is impossible.

She’s outgrown everything we have for her for jeans, so we’ve had to get creative.

This is her, wearing size 8 jeans.

They fit great at the waist….

… but they might be just a smidge too long…

So the other day I was at JC Penney’s and thought that I should go ahead and try to buy a pair of capris for her.  These capris are cute, but cost $26 after all was said and done, and I don’t like to spend that much money on kids clothes!

Of course, they fit her perfectly.  Thankfully this was with the elastic pulled in tightly, so hopefully they’ll fit her for a while!  At least in the waist anyway…  maybe with luck she’ll still be an 8 and have grown to be able to wear these as capris eventually too?

Anyway, I went to the weetail sale the other day and picked up a pair of size 7’s for $3.  I figured for the price, it didn’t matter so much if they fit or not…   And these didn’t have elastic, so I wasn’t holding my breath.

Wrong!!  They fit perfectly.  Guess we’ll be buying capris for pants!  If anyone sees more since 7/8 capris, let me know!

Also, this is what happens when you tell Averie to “stop being a booger head and stand still so I can get your picture”

    Good idea!

    I was going to try and make it to Weetail but never did. Probably a good thing since I should not be buying more clothes! 🙂

    My oldest is horrible to fit for jeans too…she’s got a butt and hips on her like no other LOL. We’ve had good luck with jeggings because I can buy them big and then fold up or “scrunch” the bottom.
