My first attempt at kid pants! (Elastic waist)

My latest creation is “elastic waist pants”. Yes, my first attempt. I bought an old pair of elastic waisted kid pants at a thrift store. I then cut them up and dissected them to use as my “template” or “pattern”. I do not read patterns. They confuse me and I never know how to interpret them. The best way is just to look at an existing pair of pants or clothing. So much easier!
