This is how I see it.
Not long now and he is not going to wear anything I make at all. Although almost six, he still prefers elastic waist pants. What I did forget was that he is growing and getting an opinion on what he likes.
So after finishing the pants I asked him to try them on, he did, but when I suggested he wear them on a recent field trip he ran away! I did stay calm (gasp) And when I asked him why he did not like them he said " I don't want to look like a leopard.
He has since worn them twice and is now happy to resemble an animal!
In stead of an label I sewed in a piece of contrasting fabric to mark the back
