Finding pants/jeans for my 7 yr old.

Hi all! I have a 7 year old daughter who is very particular about her clothes. She's not fond of the trend in pants/jeans lately,with the low-riding waist. She is constantly trying to pull them up to her normal waistline. I have looked all over to find a "normal" pair of jeans-Wal-mart,Sears,Old Navy,etc. It seems like there are no more "high-waisted" jeans anywhere! This has been very frustrating to both of us. And a little comical...what she ends up doing is pulling her pants up so high that they look like "highwaters",LOL!
I would really appreciate any suggestions that anyone has. She's pretty small and skinny for her age,right now she's wearing a size 5.
Thanks for listening!

I don't have any girls so I'm probably not much help.

You know,I had never thought of that! That's definitely worth giving a try. Thanks so much for the suggestion!

My daughter is 4. She is mature though ... thinks more like a 7 or 8 year old. Anyway ... she hates them too. I've gone to buying the Boys Jeans for her. JC Penny did have some last year that were really good. Typical waist with the elastic backs, straight leg.

I've gotten some at Lands End ... they are a little lower waisted, but ok with a tucked in shirt.

I think I'm going to give the "boys jeans" idea a try,for sure. I was also thinking of Land's End,I was on their website but couldn't really tell from the pictures as to the waist height. So I did the live chat thing and the person told me that most items were of a "regular waist height" and that if it was any lower,it would say "contour waist". She also said that most of Land's End items were very conservative. I'd like to give them a try,hopefully it will work out. I also like the idea of trying the boys section,at least I can actually go to the stores and have my daughter try them on right then and there. Again,thanks to all for your ideas and suggestions! :)

On a side note,since I'm not all that crafty,how could I "girl up" a pair of boys jeans? LOL

Thanks,
Christina

That's a great idea!! My Hanna is 6 1/2 and also wears a size 5 and is skinny. Hers are always falling down even with the adjustable waist and she also will pull them way up and they look like she is wading. I haven't had much luck either so it is off to the boys department too.
