And now we continue our parade (well, maybe sprint) to the end of the month and the quickly approaching conclusion of the Wardrobe Contest with more Mr. Baby goodies.
This time, I bring you Brindille & Twig’s Faux-Pocket Pants*!
As with all of his other garments, I made a size 9-12 month for my 8ish month, 23ish pound, 28″ish little love. ISH!
I used a sort of weird assortment of fabrics, in hopes of making his overall wardrobe somewhat cohesive. We’ll see if I met that goal in the end.
The waistband is a Birch Organic cotton ribbing, the main part of the pants is the Girl Charlee motorcycle jersey, and the fake pocket backing, pocket binding and cuffs are Birch Organic cotton interlock.
The only thing I found perturbing about this pattern was sewing the main front onto the faux pockets. The directions just have you set them under there and eyeball it. Since the “pockets” are the same exact dimensions on all sizes (meaning this would be really easy to do), I wish there were a couple of notches to get both nice and exactly lined up. Since the pocket binding is sort of a stretch-as-you-go-hope-it’s-not-too-much-or-little, I found myself obsessing about whether the finished openings were the same size and whether they laid in the same fashion on top of the backings.
And even though that annoyed me, there is just so much to love about these pants. They are damn cute and I cannot get over his adorable tush in them. I want to make a million more pairs.
Everything else went smoother than smooth with constructing these bad boys. HUZZAH!
Love, love, love how cute they are. I mean, the tinier things are the cuter they are, anyway, but these things cake the cake for me. They are truly my favorite pants of his itty bitty baby wardrobe.
