Earlier this week, I sewed up a pair of big butt baby pants (pattern by Made by Rae) for a little friend's birthday. He is not a baby and is on the slim side (no big, diapered behind), but these pj pants still look cute well beyond the baby stage. With a bit of lengthening, the 2T pattern works just fine for older skinny kids. I lengthened the main pattern piece about an inch and a half, and added a 3 inch contrast band to the bottom. It was a quick and easy sew, and got me really excited for next week's sew-a-thon!
I'm really enjoying the kcwc community pinterest board - have you checked it out? It is awesome. A little too awesome. It is making it very hard for me to narrow down my "to make" list to a reasonable length.
On my "must make" list:
- a shirt, pants, and robe for Ruby's Halloween costume
- a hoodie or jacket for Oscar
- something extra-sweet for Cora from my sewing for girls pinterest board. I've had a lot of pinning going on, but not nearly enough sewing.
This is just what I needed to break out of a sewing lull. kcwc. yay!
