Step 1: Position the front of the pants (where the buttons are located) at the navel level of your child.  Tie the twill tapes in a bow around the back. Step 2: Pull the back of pants (where the button holes are located) through the child's legs to the back.  Straighten the waistband and position center back seam at the center of the child’s back.
