I finished these adorable pants last night, and I have to say they are the cutest thing ever!!!!!
|the back side|
The pattern is from Anna Maria Horner's book Handmade Beginnings: 24 Sewing Projects to Welcome Baby. I have had this book for a while and wish it hadn't taken me so long before making this first pair. I was intimidated by the sewing pattern, but I shouldn't have been because this project was so simple and quick to make.
I discovered last night that I had every width of elastic except the 1/2" called for in the pattern. I will run out and purchase that today, but I was too excited to wait before taking pictures of the pants. I just had to share them on the blog today!

The trousers are reversible and I made one side with all Architextures fabric by Carolyn Friedlander. I just love this ledger fabric! It reminds me of my former CPA days and wanted my grandson to have a little bit of that in the first clothing I make for him.

I wasn't sure if MY son would let HIS son wear graph-paper pants, so I made the reversible side more subdued. The pants fabric used is still Architextures but only the cuffs show the ledger print.
|reversible back side|
I used fabric from the Type collection by Julia Rothman for the back yoke which I think is just adorable here! I sure wish I had pictures with the cute little guy these pants are destined for, but I plan to visit him soon. No doubt I will take one or two pictures of him wearing the pants then!
Linking up with Amanda's finish it Friday.
Happy Friday and happy stitching!!!
