kcwc fall 2011: day three
October 12th, 2011
These are the pants with the silly bunting tag I showed you last week. And look! they aren't on backwards! The pattern is from Happy Homemade vol. 2 and it is by far my favorite pants pattern. I've used it to make these pj pants, these crazy pants, these linen pants, and the exact same corduroy pants in gray (plus a few more I never blogged about). And now these blue beauties. The corduroy is a navy wide wale from joanns and it is so soft.
I found this beautiful brown wool at the thrift store and knew I could use the same pattern for some good, old man pants.Do you think I am addicted to this pattern? I am. I lined the pants with flannel using Dana's tutorial, except my waistband was separate, so I had to fake my way through that. The pockets are pretty much like Dana's too only more rounded and I pressed the top bit so the lining would show--sort of like faux piping.
The fake fly (faux fly?) is one of my favorite things about the pattern and I gussied it up with two lines of topstitching. I also did flat felled seams along the crotch and down the sides, which you can kind of see in the picture below. I put the pockets up way too high, so now my little boy has old man pants with a big, old man butt.
And just so you don't think all my garment are perfect (trust me, they are far from it) here is a shot of the inside waistband. That'll be yur Hot Mess. Part of KCWC is screwing up and soldiering on!
These people sewed on and look what amazing things they made! From the flickr pool today:
happy day three of kcwc!
