I realized that E is quickly outgrowing most of her pajama pants. So I decided to make her a new pair for Kid’s Clothes Week using the fancy pants leggings pattern from Titchy Threads. After cutting out a size 4, I realized that there was just enough left over to make a 12 month pair for O. And so we have matching turtle pants:
The fit on O is perfect after chopping off 2 inches from the length. E was sleeping when I made her pair so I just used a straight size 4. They ended up being quite roomy so I’m hoping they’ll fit for a while.
I really enjoyed the instructions for this pattern. Helpful color-coded pictures, clear instructions without being too wordy, and tips for using a serger (which I ignored a bit and did the entire things on the serger and it worked out fine as far as I can tell). These pants were fantastically easy and satisfying to make. Getting pictures of them was a bit more of a challenge as E enjoyed flopping on the bed,
And O enjoyed pulling his sister’s hair.
And then they cuddle up oh so sweetly.
Although I sure wish I’d had enough fabric to match the prints a bit! Anyway, I have one more KCW outfit to finish up and then that’ll be a wrap for spring Kid’s Clothes Week. Next I want to look through all the fabulous projects and get inspired for more spring sewing.
