Tuxedo Pants

Stylish baby pants designed with room for a diaper and wide legs that cuff to give added length when your baby grows!  Worked in the round, from the top down, with a casing for an elastic band waist, short row shaping to make room for the diaper,  ribbed stripes that go down the leg, and a wee bit of flaring at the bottom.  Seriously, who can resist Baby Tuxedo Bellbottoms?
