I also made the Ruffle Bottom Pants for girls sized 6-10. I was worried they wouldn't quite be big enough for my 9 year-old who wears size 12, but the size 10 turned out a bit big. Alisha provides finished measurements for the pants, so be sure to check those to your child or pants that fit well before cutting/sewing. I was late night sewing and skipped this step, so it's my fault they don't fit perfectly. The pattern fits large, though, so measure! I bet having a fashion degree could be helpful.

These were also a quick, easy sew, taking about an hour. I narrowed the bottom of the leg pieces by 2" and tapered the difference up to around the thigh (my girl prefers tight pants). I also shortened the ruffle width by 4" to match the smaller leg bottom and added a small 1.5" ruffle to the top of the big ruffle. I love how they turned out! They look good with her (also big) Girls World Anna Tunic and is hippie-chic. I'm anxious to see how often my big girl wears them...I think she looks darling!
