Well one of the patterns I got last Friday included pants and so thought I'd try making some. Never made pants before. Grace is a size 2 waist but a size 3 length. And Milly is a size 3 waist with her cloth nappy bum and size 1 - 2 in length, little petitie munchkin she is. I have yet to get the hang of adding in a seam allowance as you go, thats why I ended up making two pairs, the first pair looked massive, so I took an inch of each side and whoops! They were then too small for Grace so adjusted the length for Milly. Even then still a bit too tight on her bum but should be okay for the summer.
Grace flat out refuses to try her's on for a snap. The joys of being 3 and a half....... I have already cut out another pair for her, working on mastering the seam allowance. Thinking a ruffle at the hem and maybe some more fancy ribbon detail?
My sister rung this morning. We both have our kids in day care (well school for her oldest 2) so I'm packing up my machine and heading over for a day of sewing! Looking foward to it and its only Tuesday!
