So, I drew up two different patterns: one that uses one piece of fabric for each leg (= no side seams on the legs) and one with side seams and cuffs. Because I wanted something really fun for the girls to wear I chose loud and bright fabrics for both.
For the second set I used different prints from the Monkey's Bizness and Chick A Dee, Chick A Doo fabric lines.
Nice big pockets on this one, too.
And nice cuffs with a slight flare on the bottom.
When planning and making these pants I discovered how easy, quick and awesome French Seams are! Look!
Doesn't it look so clean and professional?! If you have never tried using this type of seam it's definetly worth trying. There are quite a few easy to follow tutorials available on sewing blogs.
Quite a few birthdays are coming up next month: Uroma, Nephew, Nieces AND Anika und Kordula. I have lots of plans for handmade gifts for almost all of them. But first, I need to sit down and finish Anika's pink cardigan.
Hope you have a wonderful weekend.
