been busy...

i've been hard at work sewing up some fall & winter pants for my ever-growing girl. these pairs come from a quick and fairly simple pattern i had made for my own use by a pattern-making mom on etsy. i asked for a wide-legged pants pattern that would look good short or long, with a rise roomy enough to fit the bulkiest of cloth diapers. she came through for me and i am quite pleased. here's what i've been working on: 

knicker-length pants in a thick sweatshirt knit:


full-length pants in a heavy linen (lucy is in LOVE with the little french kitties!)


another full-length pair sewn from a vintage-tea towel. i originally bought the towel to use the applique on a diaper, but there was enough fabric to make an entire pair of pants--and i didn't have to add the trim on the bottom, it was the trim on the bottom of the towel and just happened to work perfectly with the way i cut the fabric. babies can wear white after labor day, right?
 


i have to say, i'm kind of addicted to making pants for the time being. it's such a quick and satisfying project. newborn pants (lined in super-warm hemp fleece) are on my agenda!
