PPR -- The Finale

Finally! Yesterday we had our Pants Pants Revolution revelation...


Let me tell you, it was so nice to finally see them on their bodies after spending so much time on them.


They were a big hit -- and I think their parents were the most surprised to find out that it was the girls themselves who had cut out their own fabrics and designed their own jeans.


You should have seen their chests puff out with pride; that was the best part for me.


I struggled with the photos because of the bright sun, ice on the ground and inside light...


This is the littlest one, Meghan. She loves the camera so I have a million pictures of her.


She went and grabbed this little stool, sat down, lifted her chin, smiled and said, "OK, I'm ready." Cracked me up.


It's no wonder that one of the fabrics she picked out for jeans, was El Diablito


And this is Katie, the quiet one who doesn't smile too much. She and the Mona Lisa have a lot in common.


She did want you to see her favorite part of her pants though...


And just so you didn't think he wasn't around for this whole thing, Jack jumped in for his cameo appearance...


So today, I think I'm gonna rest. And take down the Christmas tree and the train --


Yes, it's true. My secret's out. I still haven't taken down my Christmas decorations. But if I had taken them down, then the kids wouldn't have enjoyed the train so much. That's the story I'm sticking with...


If you're interested, there are more pics here on Flickr. Have a beautiful day!

O man, what a great finale!! Bet no one can pick a favorite pair. Love all the pictures. You can really see how much the girls love their pants.

What a wonderfully thoughtful thing to do.

What fun! This is the age group that is just perfect for this sort of fashion and it is fun to see the individuals that go with the pants. How cool is that!? Very!!!

Seeing these pictures is like Christmas for me! Little Robin is going nutso, especially for Meghan's ruffled hems and El Diablito. Ok, correction, she wants you to know that she's crazy about all of them!!!!! And big Robin loves Katie's peace symbols.

Great pictures, Sue!!!

Who had time to take down the christmas decorations when you were sewing 9 pairs of pants plus your own pair and the belt. Did you show the girls the belt and what did they say?

They are a precious bunch of little girls and Jack's not bad at all. He looks like he will be a stunner when he grows up. then watch the girls.

Dropping by from your link on Year of Color blog.

How perfect are these jeans? They're WONDERFUL... no.. INCREDIBLE.... they remind me of when I was a kid in the 70's and we embroidered flowers on the pockets, down the leg and along the hem of our 501's.
