Sweater Pants! (edited to add--baby wearing the pants!)

I have a sweater that I haven't worn in years.  I have moved it in and out of the Goodwill pile multiple times, somehow unable to let it go.  Is it a very special sweater?  No.  Is this particular Gap cotton rib very rare and valuable?  Does it have wonderful memories associated with it?  No.  Am I a closet hoarder?  Perhaps, but don't call TLC just yet.  Tonight, I cut the sleeves off and turned them into a pair of slim-fitting pants for the babe (loosely based on this tutorial:  Green Kitchen Sweater Sleeve Kid Pants  ). We'll see tomorrow morning if they fit her!  Oh, what's that?  You'd like to see a picture?  Well, I'll add one of her wearing them later (What?  You want me to wake her up at 11:15 at night?), but for now, here they are all by their lonesomes.
If you knew me between 1996 and 2007, you've probably seen me wear this sweater.

The boy just had to be in the picture too.  I did not make
the robo-dinosaur t-shirt, just to be clear.
Side view.  I wish the rise were a bit higher, but alas.  Next time.
