First off, during the course of this search for my daughters "preferred" pants, I inadvertently learned the definition of an Ombre print: "A term used to describe fabrics with a dyed, printed or woven design in which the color is graduated from light to dark and often into stripes of varying shades." Now that is something that I really didn't want to know but will never be able to unlearn.
My daughter picked out her own outfit in 2011, and LOVES the Obermeyer ombre print pants (the jacket....meh). I don't think there has been a day that she wore them that she didn't get several "Ooooh I looooove your pants!" from strangers, and I haven't seen anyone else wearing them so she is easy to pick out on the hill.
Obermeyer ombre print pant
They had a release string to add 2 inches to the legs so they will last this year (barely). They were size 7, so I went to find a size (or two) larger as she really wants them for next year. I don't know if they were a limited run, but cannot find anything above size 6 using google, ebay, craigslist, shopping etc. She then looked for alternative patterns that she liked, and found these two OK (both again by Obermeyer)
Pink Ruby Ombre
But after fairly extensive searching was unable to find these in size 10 or 12 either. So if anybody knows of where I could get a pair of girls size 10.12 in one of these patterns or similar from another company (used OK) i would appreciate the help. Style/cut not as important as the print pattern to her at this point
/BTW my daughter is sending a letter to obermeyer along the lines of "I really love these pants and received many compliments on them. Any chance of the pattern returning?"
