Ds1 is 2y9m and all his trousers are either too short or too wide at the waist. The wide ones are causing particular problems with his running style and he's also got into the habit of walking round the house hoiking them up from time to time.
I don't have a sewing machine and I was never very good at dressmaking/alterations anyway, so could anyone recommend a good (preferably cheapish) retailer for skinny boys' trousers?
Some of H and M and Gap trousers have adjustable waists with button elastic. Not sure whether that includes toddler-sized trousers though. With ds we found that Debenhams trousers (especially the Jasper Conran range) and Next sometimes have skinnier waist and leg cut, but very much trial and error.
I've the same problem - ds1 is 3yr9months and I struggle with his trousers as to get the length I end up with enormous waist and it's a nightmare. I find Next the best although atm he is really going into age 3 in length but the waist is ridiculous - no way he can wear them. Bought him a GAP pair the other day and the waist on those is massive too.
Mum keeps telling me to get a snake belt - anyone know where you get them from?
similair problem with my ds who is 14mths he still wears a nappy but even so we have to put braces on his trousers as they fit in length but are gaping at the waist...i dread to think when he has no nappy....the braces do work thouhg and i tend to put them under his tops rather than over
