This winter has been snowy in Philadelphia. My girls are 3 and 4 years old, and growing like weeds. I like to get out and about in any weather, and I couldn't find snow boots or pants for them at our thrift store. I found some rain boots for $3 for the 3 year old, and ordered some Crocs boots for my 4 year old. I had a 20% off coupon code and a code for free shipping. Then, I lucked out at my local dead stock fabric shop, where I buy almost all of my fabric for Rebourne. I found a roll of what appeared to be waterproof high performance material, what I imagine snow pants are made from! I bought it and finally got around to drafting a pattern for each girl (based on a pair of pants that fits them well). Sewing this material and the lining of polarfleece was not easy! Lots of layers, and when there are plastics involved, sewing on a home machine is always tricky. However, I finished her pants the other day and they are super cute! Of course she wants nothing to do with them!

Now we can move to Colorado and snowboard and ski everyday! (My dream)
