My first step to starting Pants for Peanuts...making a prototype. I am no expert seamstress or pattern maker. But I had to start somewhere. I started by making two patterns — One for a denim jean that would be age-appropriate across the board. Second option —a simple, stretchy knit pant with an elastic waist for comfort and multiple uses. I needed a visual to relay my ideas for our first product line. Both feature an adjustable elastic waist and inner lining to allow the pants to be cuffed at the bottom. This will give a little flexibility with fit, all of our kiddos range in size, even on the lower end of the growth chart spectrum.
