Baby Pants

I know I am late to the downloadable pattern party, but holy cow, what a great idea. I get so annoyed with big brand printed patterns. Once you cut it to a small size, its nearly impossible to reconstruct the bigger sizes. Not that I would ever want to make one again. They are always overly simplistic and complicated all at the same time, and require tons of modifications to make them work. A PDF patterns can be printed again and again.

Fabric : Joann Fabric - Denim
Riley Blake, Bloom and Grow, Cream - Cuffs

This pattern was so straight forward it almost made itself. They are a little too simple in this fabric, so I added the cuffs. I top stitched all the seams, but you can hardly see it in the coordinating color. Next time I would make the waist a bit more substantial, maybe use 1" elastic, and do the top stitching in a contrasting color. Otherwise, great pattern. Its so hard to buy pants to fit a cloth diapered baby.
I have gotten so much sewing done in the past two days it makes me wonder why I'm so committed to knitting. A little knit hat takes two days, plus blocking time. This pair of pants took two hours.

Note: The moccasins in the first picture are from Kaboogie. Love, love, love them!


  1. love these! I have seen this pattern but so sad, no more big butt babies for me! Glad to see you sewing! can't wait to see more. beautiful blog!
