Here they are! This is the second pair I make this month and it was so much faster the second time around. From cutting to hemming it took me, I would say, about four hours. Not bad!
I’ll use Meg’s format for my description:
The pattern: this is the second o+s pattern I use, and I am just fascinated by the ease with which these garments come together. I love these pants and I will make them again, maybe in corduroy? I have been using croquis paper to trace my patterns and it’s been fabulous. I bought my roll of paper at Staples.
The fabric: I had bought this chambray back in February from Fabric.com and, originally, I had planned to make hopscotch skirts from it. It didn’t happen, and earlier in the month, my eldest had a birthday party and I had hoped to finish the pants for that–it didn’t happen either. Here they are, though! I opted to not go with the contrasting ruffle after seeing a solid navy pair in the Flickr pool, and I am very pleased with the results. I may try contrasting with the next pair.
The sewing: as I said, these came together so easily, I was very surprised. The one thing I hate, though, this little detail here:
You would think that, being the second pair and all, that would not happen, but it did… Hopefully, with a long-ish tee, no one will ever be able to tell
I really like them!
What have you been making?
