kcw spring 2013 :: chambray parsley pants

aaaaand it’s kid’s clothes week time again!  woohoo!  and you may have already seen that KCWC founder meg has teamed up with dorie to build a whole new dedicated KCW site.  KCW will now be FOUR times a year and from what it sounds like, they’re working to turn it into a really great year-round resource for those of us sewing for kids, with all sorts of helpful features we can’t even imagine yet!  can’t wait to see what it all evolves into.

but now i’m rambling, and if i’m going to post almost every day this week, i can’t do that!  especially since i’m a little behind in my preparations.  i usually have everything cut out by the Sunday before KCW starts, and currently it’s just all in a pile – fabrics are chosen, but not cut out.  i did tape/cut out some PDF patterns, but not as much as i’d like.  okay.  stop talking.  show the pants and get back to sewing.

these fellas are Rae’s Parsley Pants pattern, now for sale!  i’m telling ya, this pattern is a must-have.  it’s basic with tons of options, is one of the quickest sews ever (like 30 minutes from first cut to final thread snip for the most basic version) but doesn’t look like pajamas – it’s just a great basic pant for boys and girls.  this is actually the third pair of Parsleys i’ve made for O, i just haven’t blogged the second pair yet (the first was orange).

the fabric is a lightweight stretch chambray from the mill end annex, with hemp knee patches (same fabric used here and here and here).  super comfy for him.

i’m not buying any new fabric (or patterns) for this KCW, i’m just trying to cross things off my mental “to make” list.  and this kid needed pants.

    Cool pants, O! Maybe my #3 needs some for when she starts crawling. I once saw a bumper sticker that said something like, “Yes this is my truck. No I won’t help you move.” I imagine knowing how to sew can be similar to owning a truck, especially when you are talented. 😉 Good work.

      hahaha! kinda true – people at work used to always ask me to hem things when they found out i can sew (which is the worst kind of sewing). but i can make some of these for #3, for sure! with heart kneepatches! 🙂

    Love the knee patches! The Parsley looks like a great pattern and I’m liking all the different versions I’ve seen. And that hat!! O is so cute!

    Great pants – and with knee pads too…definitely required for little boys, I suspect! I am super excited about KCW being four times a year now – I always thought it should be so!! Sewing mamas unite!

    I love that belly! I’m on the no new new fabric/patterns idea too. But it kinda makes me want to be lazy and make the same 2 patterns over and over again. But I won’t. But I might. These pants are so cute on him.

    I love these!! And I am so jealous that you’ve already sewn up a pair of parsley pants…can’t wait for the pattern! Oh, and yeah…the belly button…i hope you tickled it after taking the photo! 🙂

    Love the kid. Love the pants. Love the belly. I seriously want some chambray parsley pants for myself. I already have the belly, though mine is not nearly as cute 😛
