Very Hungry pants!

May 11, 2008

This is my first go at ‘real’ pants (pockets, back yoke, fake ‘fly’), as opposed to simple unstructured pants. I used a KwikSew pattern, though I adjusted the size to fit Alastair. I did NOT like the way the waistband was constructed; I found it far too fiddly. So that bit is pretty messy, but they’re pants for a 2yo – he’s not going to care. Having learnt the basics of how to construct a pocket, I should be able to adapt my own pattern. I’d prefer slightly wider legs, and as I said I’d just do a simpler waistband.

I still think they’re cute! Babywale pale green corduroy with quilting cotton accents 🙂 THE VERY HUNGRY CATERPILLAR. (Alastair loves this book.)

I’ll try and get an action shot because they don’t lie flat very well.
