I found I had to buy adjustable waist pants, everything else just slid off.

There are so few adjustable waist pants out there it seems, or are they all in the boys section? I've no objection to buying boys shorts, I just forget to look. We need lots of clothes to cope with the level of destruction daycare exacts on them.

Boys section, I found a few nice ones for little girls. Though I had more of an issue with my son (DD flat out refused to wear anything but skirts and tights from 2), so was shopping in the boys section anyway.

Also I found most skirts were adjustable and leggings didn't have the same issue due to being tighter.

Oh I hear you, I love op shop for this reason, I feel less guilty about kids trashing preloved stuff.

My daughter fits her brothers hand me down size 1 shorts best. She's currently 2.5 and a petite thing.

Size 1 shorts in the boys (not baby) section is now my first place to go.

Lots of the boys pants have the adjustable waist. Either that, or put darts in (you know, because you've got nothing better to do with your time!).

:rofl:

I noticed that the spare pair of shorts she wore home from daycare were also a bit on the loose side (like almost falling down) - they are size 0! Maybe the elastic is gone a bit since they were last year's.

Mandala - I have actually thought about tightening all the elastic in her shorts. I have a friend who is handy with a sewing machine who could do with a side income who I could ask to do it, but she is the most disorganised person I know. The shorts would still be there months later! I could ask my mum, but my mum sewing is how I learnt all the swear words..

Aww what a tiny little cutie. My DD pretty much just wore leggings (short ones in summer, long ones in winter) with t shirts or dresses at that age.

For kids' clothes, I'd just do a really bodgy job - put a slit in the inside of the waist band, put a safety pin in one end of a strip of elastic, feed the safety pin around the waist band, when it comes out the other end, cut the elastic, tighten to size, then tie a knot in the elastic. No sewing, no tidy ends - they grow out of the clothes or otherwise wear them out so quickly.

Cotton On Kids have adjustable waist shorts. I think the style is called Cassie. I love them!

I have other pairs from Target and best n less and Kmart. They tend to be the more structured styles like denim shorts.

I wouldn't say there are heaps but they're not hard to find. I have found that the shorts problem has improved as DD hit the 2-3 range. I think the smaller sizes are still cut to allow for nappies. It sounds counter intuitive but maybe skip the baby section and look at the size 2 in the big girls area. I found the size 2 in the girls vs the size 2 in the babies to be cut very differently.

It's a problem though. Almost 3 year old DD was getting round in size 1 shorts recently. The waist was fine but they were disgracefully short 😔
