Poofypants are comfy, adjustable, practical, and adorable britches for little ones. I designed them for my own son after struggling to get store-bought pants over his bulky diapers. Babies and toddlers naturally lounge around with bent "frog legs" and well padded bums. Poofypants have a roomy front and back rise, and are cut wider across the crotch. This allows for maximum comfort, and also looks super-cute. Poofypants are designed to grow with baby. They have a stretchy elastic waistband and the cuffs allow for lenthening as those legs grow. Best of all, they are reversible, so you get two looks in one. Use fun novelty prints, or go with designer fabrics for a boutique look. Poofypants are quick and easy to sew, and make for the perfect baby gift. Pair with a simple appliqued onesie or T-shirt to create a complete outfit that will get worn again and again.
