This past weekend I had some good one-on-one time with my sewing machine. With little time to sew, it can be a little intimidating choosing what to make! So much pressure making that time count! Well, with cold days here and a baby with very few pairs of pants, I decided to make pants out of random jersey scraps. And pants galore I did make :)
I came across this fantastic tutorial online a few days ago and bookmarked it. I'm fairly new to pattern following but this one was beyond easy. These were a breeze to make! In fact, I've made six...so far :)
This was the pair that started it all, made from a dress that I have had since high school, affectionately known as the carrot dress. One Halloween, my best friend wore this dress (long sleeve, long dress, alllllll orange) with a stuffed bunny pinned to the butt and a fake plant stuck in her hair. She was a carrot and it was awesome. Now the carrot dress has been reincarnated to cover my kid's tush.
And what's a fashion post without a little modeling from a little model?! In this photo, they are pulled up pretty far (a la grandpa stylin') which tells me that she'll be able to wear them for a few months to come!
Next up on my baby clothes making list are t-shirts. These t-shirts to be exact.
