New Jammie Pants

11.28.2009



I finally did it.  I made pants!  For some unknown reason I haven't made any sort of pants yet {please don't think less of me}. I had some goofy flannel to use up and we are running low in the pants department.  Emily's pants are all too big around the waist for her (I'm planning on fixing that with this tutorial).  And Natalie is getting too tall for her old jammies.  I always find it hard to sew clothes for them because most of the time they don't need anything, but this time they did!  And guess who wore their pants all day long today? Yep, they both did.  I was amazed.  I let the sewing fairy leave them their pants at the breakfast table for them to discover in the morning.  Kinda fun. 





I used Handmade Mommy's 15 minute jammy pant tutorial and it worked great!  Up until now I had been fearful (for some yet undiscovered reason) of using clothing to trace to make patterns with.  I just had one tiny snafu.  I traced a pair of tighter stretch knit pants for Natalie.  Of course flannel isn't stretchy like knit, so her pants may only fit her for a couple weeks before we'll have to tuck them away.  Anyway, I'm glad I made them and now I'm excited to make more!
