Pants! For Spring! And this transitional weather! I want to make a million of these. Well, ok, maybe not a million, but how about a dozen more? They're comfy and cute and easy to modify. And Dahlia seems to dig 'em.
A couple of things to keep in mind when sewing using Japanese patterns. The publishers like to cram in all the pattern pieces in one large double sided sheet so you have to pay close attention when you're tracing. Often, one piece will be used for several patterns. The seam allowance is not included, so you need to add that while tracing. The diagrams are very clear and easy to follow, and they're perfect for someone who is more of a visual learner (like me).
More kids' clothes coming up on this here blog in the next few weeks. With the Kids Clothes Week just around the corner and Dahlia having outgrown just about everything we have for her, I'm going to be a busy happy stitcher.
