I hate to float my own boat, but I am oh so proud of these little autumn pants I made for L'il B's Easter basket. I am a very very beginner sewer (as in, when I got my machine I had to ask someone how to place the clothes on it to start stitching). It's been a few months of beginner projects and mucking around and today I made my very first pattern from scratch using a pair of his old trackie daks as a basic guide. It helped that I had previous experience sewing toddler pants from old t-shirts- kind of an introductory course to the real deal. They are fleece on the inside and the cuffs and pocket are made from some fabric I picked up at the thrift shop. What was most satisfying is that I expected this would take me a week or so to finish, but I did it all during one naptime! You can't tell by the photos but this is the most clean and sharp sewing project I have done to date- no mistakes, no funny stitching, no uneven lines. Their only little flaw is the pocket it a but too close to the waist. Anyway, I'm sorry this was a very boastful post, but I wanted to share my excitement with all of you.
Hope you're having a lovely weekend with those you love,
