The sweater I bought at the thrift store had a really long section of the sleeve with just the straight lines. I wanted the detail of the rest of the sleeve, so I folded it up to make a cuff and added 3 buttons on each legwarmer.
The sad part is, since B hasn’t worn any babylegs since last winter, she wasn’t liking these very well once they were on.
She kept telling me they were too big. I kept telling her how cute they were, and when we picked up her brother D from school, I said, “Tell B how much you like her legwarmers.” He laughed and said, “I like your leg things B. They are kind of funny.”
I didn’t think anything of it really (because a 5 year old knows nothing of fashion of course). After a few seconds pause, I hear Little Miss B whisper in the back to her brother, “I don’t like them.” Totally made me laugh, especially because she’s barely 2.
Thanks for such a simple and CUTE idea, Nicole!
