I don’t normally sew pants. I haven’t found a leggings pattern I like and pants just never seem worth the effort for something you could easily buy. But these were so rewarding! I can’t say that I’m converting to all hand made bottoms but I feel so accomplished after these! There is a sew along on the blog that really walks you through all the steps and breaks it down into manageable intervals.
The pattern comes in 0-3 M to 3T or 3T to 12 and there is a free size two to download. I used the free pattern to see if I would like it enough to buy the full pattern and I’ve got to say I do think it’s worth it. For her size I think I’m going to wait until she needs the size three (and as you can see from the picture that’s a long way off) to purchase the pattern to get the most use out of it although you can pay a little more to get all the sizes.
The back is probably my favorite part. All the topstitching makes them look really professional. And I’m in love with the pockets!
The instructions have you topstitch the inseam which also adds to the the professional feel as well as reinforces the seem to make it extra strong.
Luckily these have an adjustable waist that uses buttonhole elastic so you can easily let them out if needed.
