WTB Girls size 10,12 ombre print pant.

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

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.

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)

 

Kaleidoscope

 

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?"

Evidence of the strength of epicskis web presence (or possibly the weakness of my Googlefu): a couple of hours after posting the above, I returned to Google and tried more variations on searching for the pants. No matter how I worded it, my own darn WTB post would come back as one of the top five results

My daughter likes the Obermeyer pants, too :D Unfortunately, she is a lot smaller so has none to pass on to your daughter. Good luck--I have a feeling you'll find them eventually!

Hadn't, now I have. No joy but thanks for the tip.

I don't think you are going to find the first ones; I'm pretty sure that size run stopped at 7. Do they still fit in the waist? We added material to the bottom of my daughter's pants when she was 7 or 8. That would give you another year or so, then I would think she might be ready for something new and maybe even "more grown up." ;-)
