Well, I’m playing catch up with KCW
this season, I’m woefully behind but last night I made up two little pairs of pants for Portia.
Honorary Day 1
The first is a pair of jegging shorts, from an old pair of jeggings a friend gave me to up-cycle. I used my Skinny Legs pattern and cut them inbetween the shorts and knee length. I made the size 12 for my skinny bum Portia.
I stuffed up the waistband so I ended up adding an exposed elastic one which actually looks really good. Itsn’t it funny how mistakes can sometimes turn out better than the actual plan!!!
I managed to fussy cut so the pockets were on the back of the shorts, and the line on the front that you can see is actually the side seam of the jeggings.
I found the exact same colour thread so that was a bonus.
Honorary Day 2
The second pair of pants I made were using my trusty Peekaboopocket pant pattern
. I use this pattern SO MUCH. I made the 18 month with the 3-6 month length.
For the fabric I used this top. It was a nice cotton lycra with these funny puffy flowers all over it. lovely fabric but as a top, just a bit much.
I cut off the collar, which I used for the cuffs.
