Worst case senario...safety pins are your friends. Angie is so small we had to resort to that as everything else we tried looked all wrong.
If done carefully nobody will notice unless they look really close. If someone is eyeballing me that close we're gonna have more to talk about than leg flares.
Good Luck

I have used safety pins with good results but it is annoying so I'm thinking of the money clip/hook upgrade here soon... as I put my flares on about half on the boot and half above. I'm too short to put them above the boot, it looks like its on my knee if I do that.

I'm another member of the Popsicle Stick Cult of Ed. I drilled small holes in the end of two sticks and sewed them to the inside instead of gluing them. Works like a charm!

Regards,

Since I improved my velcro DURING C4, no extra tricks have been needed. Now about the purple toes of my left foot..... Shocked
