i wanted to sew something quick/easy/functional as a “palate cleanser” before i jump into Halloween costumes and while i’m still waiting for the go-ahead to blog a few other more involved projects that i’ve been sewing (i have like 12 or 13 things i can’t blog yet – it’s getting ridiculous). plus, i recently realized i haven’t shown baby C on here for a while (he’s 8 months old already!!!!!) so i had to fix that.
now please enjoy my pile o’ children in their homemade pajama pants.
funny story, bro. E and O are both wearing the same size parsley pants – size 3. hers have about 3” added to the length (1.5″ to the pants plus a 1.5″ cuff), and his are as written. i trimmed off the flare at the bottom of both pairs for a bit more of a straight-legged fit, and that made it easier to lengthen hers and add the cuff. i cut out and sewed both in about 2 hours during naptime. love how quick they are!
his fit is more baggy, hers more slim – which works with how they like to wear their clothes anyway. i was actually shocked that her pants fit her so well length-wise with just the right amount of growing room. i sewed them while she was at school and the legs seemed ridiculously long to me, but nope! perf.
baby C’s pants were originally blogged here – they’re Rae’s free newborn pant pattern and they’re too small for him now, but i couldn’t pass up the opportunity to take photos of the three kids together in matching jammies. i was happy to squeeze both pairs for the big kids out of 1.5 yards of fabric but there wasn’t enough left for the little guy, unfortunately.
i should probably just go ahead and pile the kids onto our bed for all future photoshoots.
the little guy is almost crawling but not quite – a great baby phase!
mostly he does a lot of “downward facing dog” then lunges forward or rolls to get places when he wants to.
i sure do love these three, and i love that they love each other. for some reason handmade pajama pants get me all sentimental!
P.S. thanks to cloud9 for sending the citron elephants over! my kids loved their fanfare flannel pajama pants from last year but flannel shorts are a bit oxymoronic…and that’s the length those are now.
