I've made Calvin four pairs of elastic waist pants and made three different mistakes on three pairs!! The first pair I made Calvin, I sewed a large hem too close to the bottom so that the hem can flip down and show. I need to re-hem them. The second pair I made, I somehow managed to have the pants right side out when I made the elastic casing so it's now wrong-side out. That must have been a late-night mistake. Oh well, his t-shirts cover it up : ). The third pair, I got the tanks right side up on one leg and upside down on the other one. This is something I was careful not to mess up on the other pairs, so I'm not sure how I did it on this one. Finally, the fourth pair turned out pretty good.

I made big sister a pair of pajama pants this afternoon and I think they're perfect.
The moral of the story... if at first you don't succeed, try, try again. Or in my case, try, try, try, again : ).
