There was a last minute change of design with these pants. I had planned to make them in a dark blue denim until yesterday morning. While dressing Sachin in a pair of old jeans he announced "no not these, I want soft ones". Soft ones hey? He's practical just like his Dad. So the re-think began. Had to find something in the stash as I only had last night to get them finished (tonight I'm packing to go away for a few days).
Ta da! Plain but with a little pocket flair on the back courtesy of a thrifted retro bed sheet. It makes me laugh that he has a pair of personalised pants with his initials on the back. Of course he doesn't yet appreciate his mothers genius... but he will :)
I'm not sure why I was so scared of the whole pattern thing. These Hipsters for Slimsters were simple and very straight forward and they fit just as I imagined they would. Perfect pants for slim children with no hips. I plan to make more now that I've mastered the first pair.
I really wish I had an extra couple of days to work on some other ideas floating around in my head. Thanks to Meg I think I have discovered a whole new sewing world.... I'll start with the kids then maybe get enough confidence to try adult clothes next.
