This time around I made pants for the oldest and youngest!
Essential Pants from Little Girls, Big Style book.
a floral corduroy I got on clearance from Joann's years ago! I have brought this fabric out almost every fall with an intention to make a jumper or some pants, and every year it has gone back into the stash. No more!
two pattern pieces. Easy, except for the fact that I had just enough fabric and I had to cut each leg out separately I forgot to flip one piece around, so ended up with two of the "same leg". So I had to fudge it a bit. Not at much room for the *cough* derriere as there should be, but they seem to fit okay for now. I made the size 6 which fits just fine except the length is jussst right. I don't think she will be able to wear them for longer than a couple months. Luckily, she has a sister who will fit into them when she doesn't. ;0) I also appliqued some stars onto the pants with the same fabric to give it a little something something. Kind of fun to look and find them.
Britches and Bloomers by Jackie Clark
Summer Love by Art Gallery. I made myself a wrap skirt in the spring from this fabric, and I had just enough leftover for some baby pants. I love this line of fabric. One of my favorite lines of this year.
This pattern is pretty similar to the pants I made for Juliana. Just two pieces and a little ruffle. I made the 6-12 month size. Samantha is a tiny six month old so they don't quite fit, but they will soon enough!
Coming up next: something for the boy!
See what I made for day one here.
