Oh holy cuteness! My friend Brandy got me this pattern so I could make her daughter some pants that fit over her cloth diapers. Why didn't I ever think of this??? The pants I made Ingrid always always were too tight in the butt, I could've used this pattern for her for sure! Good thing I have it now for Otis.
Anyway, I tried a basic pair today to see how the pattern worked. It's pretty straightforward except it takes some getting used to when sewing the curved part of the butt panel. It just doesn't look like it's going to match up and then viola! It does! Amazing how patterns work, eh?
Here's the front:
And here's the butt. Love that panel!
Now to add some pockets, a coordinating fabric cuff, rick rack. The possibilities are endless and I'm so looking forward to making more! And Miss Brandy is a super fine photographer in the Charlotte NC area so hopefully she'll take some sweet pics of her chunky monkey and let me use them when I sell the pants. Hint, hint, Brandy.
