The Divine Miss M has a body like a grasshopper–LONG legs, skinny torso. It makes for a challenge when we shop for pants. They either fit around the waist or in the length, never both! We settle for the waist and get creative with the leg length. Our newest discovery is My Hikes fasteners. They help kids’ pant cuffs stay up and are fun to wear!
I love My Hikes because they are easy to apply, gentle on the pants, lightweight so they don’t distract or take away the comfort of the pants. We can cuff up to two-inches with a single fold or four-inches with a double fold. Works best with most medium weight fabrics, including jeans and they were invented by a mom!
Life just got a whole lot easier. The Divine Miss M can grow like a weed and we can undo the cuff to accommodate her latest growth spurt. It can all be done easily and I don’t have to set aside time to sew, unhem or anything that requires time. Just uncuff, adjust the length and clip the My Hikes in place!
Dani, the mom who invented My Hikes, understood that moms typically buy their children’s clothing a litter larger, but not all had the time or ability to sew in hems. It’s genius!
At first I thought it was going to be like hair bows, and fall out during playtime. Nope! you have to make a conscience effort to take them off. They stay put! Putting them on is a cinch:
- Cuff pant leg up to 2 inches in height with vertical pant seam aligned (Single or double fold cuffs as needed.)
- Side fastener on cuff. Center it over the vertical pant seams.
- View ring-like part inside pant leg. Make sure vertical seam passes between the two little tabs.
- Use fingers to support ring-like part inside pant leg. Use thumb to press design through ring-like part and feel a snap.
My Hikes come in a variety of designs, making their use not only practical but fun. They are suited for kid of all ages, with designs for both girls and boys. My Hikes can be worn by infants, toddlers, kids, teens, I even tried them out. You can mix and match them; trade them and collect them.
The Divine Miss M picked out the My Hikes Butterfly. She has been using them this summer to shorten capris into walking shorts. We are looking forward to school starting and buying jeans she loves and not have to fret about measuring, cutting and hemming. The My Hikes will give her more wear for our money, stretching our budget further.
My Hikes clean easily with mild soap and water, however, they should not be put into the washing machine or dryer.
They also reverse to a clear side making them versatile regardless of what The Divine Miss M is wearing. I love products that are flexible and allow our style to shine.
My Hikes should be a part of everyone’s wardrobe. They are a great alternative to sewing and work excellent in keeping pant legs in place. They are fun and easy to use and a great product.
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
