refashion: pants surgery

My solution to my fussy boy’s request for no zipper pants… Velcro!
Easy to flick open and close. Mighty fun too!
No zipper to catch his underwear when he makes quick dashes to the loo.
And the stitches are quite subtle from the front; not noticable :-). I thank the genius who invented velcro :-)

PS: HQ has been showing off his velcro pants to others and I must say, the viewers were very impressed (come on... velcro pants?). Adults too... hahaha. Admidst their excitement, Mama had to gently remind them to tune down a bit, especially when we're in public. During CNY. *sheepish smile*

Do you remove the zipper, or simply sew the velcro on top of them? Brilliant idea, anyhow.

A Mom's Diary: I removed the zippers before sewing on the velcro :-).
