Dusky pink harem leggings created from a second hand t-shirt.
Harem style leggings with an additional panel in the gusset to allow enough room for cloth nappies whist maintaining comfort and freedom of movement.
The fit is relaxed so you will get plenty of wear from them which is so important to me as I am all for buying less and getting as much wear out of something and therefore reducing waste.

Kids clothing lovingly created from second hand fabric
Making clothes out of old clothes is something that I have always done since I had my little girl. I then started making clothes as gifts and from there Little Rose Clothing was born.
I was shocked to read that in the UK alone we send 13 million items of clothing to landfill every week and I knew that I wanted to do my small part to stop some of that happening and so I will strive to use as much of an item of clothing that I can and remake it into another piece of clothing that is unique as your child.
Every item is handmade by myself at my dining room table around being a full time mummy.
As a mum to a cloth nappy bottom who loves to climb I sometimes struggled with high street leggings fitting over our nappies without them pulling and often ending up with holes in the seams so I decided to add an extra panel at the crotch of each garment to allow for those extra bulky nappies I love and also to allow a bit more freedom of movement without the pull on the seams of standard leggings.
Everything is stitched with black thread so that I am not wasting thread by trying to colour match to the fabric and seams are finished on an over-locker to provide a secure stitch, as we all know how much stretching and pulling these kids can put their clothes through!
