the pants that took over KCWC

Every Kids’ Clothing Week Challenge I am overly ambitious.  My to-sew list is always much longer than I could realistically accomplish.  And this year was no exception.

These pants were a labor of love.  I usually crank pants out pretty quickly [once you get the hang of them, they really don’t take that long to make], but I took my time on these.

They’re made from some soft corduroy from Joann’s, and I used the same pattern that I drafted for these pants.

This year I added some pockets, based on Dana’s tutorial here.

Eli is pretty much obsessed with pockets right now, so adding these made the pants super fun for him.

The pockets added a little more time, as did the red topstitching I did on the seams.  It’s just there for fun, to add a  little bit more color to the pants.  If I had a double needle [which leaves me asking, why don’t I?!], I would have used that along the seams.

Hello, red stitching!  I think I love you.

I spent a little extra time on some details with these pants, but I think it was worth it.  The pass the toddler comfort test, and now I want to make them in my size.  Mother-son matching pants?  Maybe not. ;)
