I love how the waist band swirls and there isn't much you can do but again it's not seen anyway unless your child is shirtless.

I just finished these up and I love them.



Another pair I did with no trim that I love.


yay the first pair is coming to live with me

Generally I prefer trim. But it's not a must by any means.

Re: does no trim color bother you??

i usually make the waist band a trim color but i LOVE no trim for the legs. Something about trim in the legs reminds me of jammies...

Sometimes I use trim, sometimes I don't. It depends on the colorway.

Agreed.

I always think I really prefer having trim, but then I do a pair without it and like it too, LOL.

And for footies I do prefer no trim, since I only use it in the waistband anyway:


(Unless I do heels and toes in trim, like in my avi pic.)
