Big Butt Baby Pants

Sewing3There are only so many times in your life that you can get away with wearing a garment that is designed to make your butt look big.  I don't know how long the window is (3 years? 5 years?), but it's very small.  And I think the Peapod should get to take full advantage of it.  Hence, the Big Butt Baby Pants.

(Digression: I was at the Gap the other day when I saw the first sweater dress of the year. I love the idea of sweater dresses, but their lack of structure tends to make me look pregnant.  I was gazing at the dress longingly when the light bulb clicked on....wait a second, I am pregnant!  While that particular sweater dress was not for me, I'm officially on the hunt.  I will buy a sweater dress this year and I will wear the hell out of it! But anyway....)

And the little contrasting butt panels are pretty cute.  A fitting "end" to my flurry of making-things!
