Some time ago, I took DD up to see my sewing teacher, Sarah Veblen, and Sarah drafted a basic pants pattern so that I could try sewing some pants for my daughter. At the time I sewed a muslin to check the fit but I never got around to using the pattern again until now. The fit was nice, I just had not taken the time to add style details like pockets, zipper, etc.
Over the weekend I had a strong urge to sew something for my daughter, and I pulled out the happiest fabric in the pile. I just love this plaid! I know DD loves bright colors and she has a soft spot for anything '80's, so I was thinking she might like pj pants.
I sewed them up, and my first thought was, "these are not fly enough for Laura".
Note: I do not use the word "fly" as an adjective; but I could hear her saying that...
So! I had enough fabric left to make big bias triangles for the side seam and large bias cuffs.
Now these pants are fly enough for Laura!
And since I was so deep into sentimental sewing, I made a shopping bag (see the little label "crafted with love" ? So cute!)
That fabric just says HAPPY to me. I hope it says happy to my DD.
So.... when will I finish those black pants!! I started them on NOVEMBER FIRST~! It is December 14! That is a loooooong time to finish a simple pair of pants.
Happy Sewing friends~~~
