When your child is so long legged and skinny? LOL

I already have to buy 8 slim with adjustable waist band. The pants he has on today are skinny jeans and they are baggy on him. But he looks like he's waiting for a flood. He needs a 10 for length, but even with skinny jeans, he'll look like he's wearing a parachute on his butt.

I don't know what's better, parachute tush, or flood pants?

    I hate a shorty. He is 5 1/2 and in 4t slim pants. Here's a bump though!

    Awe. LOL...

    I guess my youngest son is average. He can wear a 6 or 7. 6 is perfect length, 7 is a little long...they have to have an adjustable waist, but he fills the rest of them out.

    Have you tried online maybe there is a online site for his size or getting them taylored. but that could get pricey .

    Yeah, there's no way I could afford specialty jeans or getting anything tailored, lol. It's bad enough to pay $16-$20 for the ones he wears........

    I bought these at the end of August/beginning of September.

    I was like that when I was a young teen. I use to sew a new seam on the inside of the leg.

    I'm not that crafty. My mom could probably do it. But I usually pass down any jeans that don't get ruined to my youngest son...and he wouldn't need them slimmed down.

    He's gotten a whole two months wear out of these, and they're already too short. It's getting ridiculous! I'm going to leave it alone until next fall if I think I can get by with it.

    Dd had pants issues as a younger child. I always had to shop at Old Navy. They seemed to be the only place to get pants that I didn't have to have altered.

    good luck.

    LOL...DH suggested trying to find girls skinny jeans that didn't look girlie (a lot have pink stitching or things patched on them)
