do you sew at all? its super easy to make a pair of trousers, even wthout a sewing machine! ivve made a few pairs, as well as fleece longies and i really like them :) they dont look really professional but still very wearable! xx

I get my kids stuff in tesco and woolworths, somtimes primark if i can stand the hecticness of it all. All of those places sell trousers with adjustable waists which seem to be more roomy than ones without.

interestingly, I found I had trouble from 12-18m with trousers but then this improved when she moved into 18-24m although I still had to be careful. However I recently bought a bundle of clothes from ebay and the 2-3yrs Next trousers are a perfect fit! I was really surprised. And Charlotte is quite chunky! I would definately say the 12-18m period was the worst.

I've always found next really small fitting. :( Plus I'm a skinflint when it comes to clothes. :wink: :lol: Think next is way overpriced for what it is.

Cole is growing so ridiculously fast he doesn't stay in one size for long. :roll:

I can sew actually and do have a sewing machine. It's quite hard to find fabric though in my area of the country. There seems to be no fabric shops/market stalls left now. :(

I made Cole's first two snowsuits actually. He's grown out of them now so I'm going to sell them. :(

Hmmm...no Primark anywhere close to us. The nearest one is quite a distance but I might have to persuade husband that we need a trip there sometime. :wink:

I found some jeans and trousers in Tesco today, in size 6-9 months, that will fit him hopefully with the bottoms rolled up. :lol: He's only 15 weeks old (I think!) but is very long anyway without adding to that the cloth bum! :lol:

It's very strange isn't it? I remember when Anya potty trained she had to go down a size in trousers. :lol: :lol: It became a lot harder to find trousers that would stay up on her as she was very skinny at the time and lost her big cloth bum too. :lol:

Have you looked at tinkertogs.co.uk? I've never ordered anything from them but their prices are cheaper than cut4cloth.

Other than that, I have found some very roomy trousers in h&m and some good stretchy ones in m&s and lots of dungarees in osh kosh.
