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. ;)
