Also in November I did some testing for Jess of If Only They Would Nap. This was her first pattern and testing for her was a joy! The Bottoms Up pants are designed to be a simple to sew pants pattern with extra room to cover the fluffy rear of a cloth diapered baby or toddler. The pattern fit great and the directions were awesome. I used a large pair of corduroy pants for the main fabric and a novelty robot fabric to make fun pockets.
Love how this picture!
This picture shows just how happy pockets make kids!
The pattern fit great and I couldn’t stop with one.
Here is my second pair. On this pair I serged wrong sides together then top stitched the seam allowance down on the side seams. The fabric is sweatshirt material fused with microfleece and I wanted it to be super soft inside. I love how it turned out. My husband keeps trying to figure how I can make a pair in his size. I should have bought more of that material when I found it at the warehouse sale!
Turns out I couldn’t stop there. Fortunately, Emmett needed pants.
Here he is wearing the brown cords on Thanksgiving.
He might need a few more pairs of pants to match the shirts I am currently working on for our Disney trip. Guess what pattern I will be reaching for? Want the pattern? You can find it here.
Have you ever started with a new pattern and not been able to stop?
