SO funny, Hokiemum told me that our local TJMaxx had some Petit Bateau t-shirts for like $3. (If you've never heard of PB they're an older French company, high quality unders with a crazy high price to match, about $18 for a freakin' pair of *childrens* panties!)

So I went, didn't find any shirts - but OMG!!! I freaked out. In the 9-month old section of the Infant Wear there was this pair of knit pants. I look, I feel - They're WOOL and they are Petit Bateau!!! I couldn't believe it. I can't imagine what they normally cost but I only paid $12.99 - I can't even find any listings for them anywhere so I think they're uncommon, who knows...

SO get thee hence to TJ Maxx!!!

They're knit in garter stitch, they have seams, but they're quite nice with a high rise so they'll cover a diapered bum well. I don't think they have much shaping in the bum area, though. I think they'll work out pretty well for nighttime, they're fairly thick.

They'll never match the gorgeous WAHM handknits, but they're not bad at all!

That's great! The thing about TJMaxx is they are hit-or-miss. I was there the other day and found NOTHING. Sometimes I'll go and find so much good stuff that I can't even buy all the things I find.

Oooh, I have been wanting to go by there sometime, so you just pushed me over the edge. I would love to see a picture of them.

Here's a picture!
Nothing particularly fancy except that they're Petit Bateau!

Oh, and I just noticed that the tag has the original price on them - $73!!! Not a bad score.

Goes with everything! And if they get dingy looking, those would be fun to dye. Nice score!
