well, i had a pretty good streak going for a while there. so close to a garment a day! i had these sailboat pants completed on wednesday night except for sewing on the buttons. i even brought the buttons up to my room with the thought of sewing them on before going to sleep. that did not happen. so i finished it yesterday (and started my fifth item) and i’m feeling good.
the pattern is the oliver + s sailboat pants (again), this time made in a really fantastic honey-colored corduroy i got at fabric depot. it’s heavy duty stuff. check this out:
i promise they’re clean! 🙂
the size is 12-18 months, but i cut 18-24 month length. sailboats are meant to be a little short, but i didn’t want that for fall/winter.
i had fun with the details on this one, facing the front and side panels with joel dewberry woodgrain, adding a second row of topstitching to the hem of each pant leg, and using meg’s tutorial for a bunting tag.
i think they look pretty cute paired with his elbow patch sailboat top, too! corduroy and elbow patches, how much more mini-professor can you get?
i have just ONE MORE item on my pre-planned list for KCWC – the dreaded tutu for Em’s halloween costume. it’s actually in process and not that bad so far…famous last words, right?
