Recreate It! Lavendar Baby Pants
I do have some baby pants patterns for pants and shorts, but I LOVE the angulation and trim on the bottom of these. So I wanted to be able to do this with pants and some long legged-shorts. Won't they be cute?
I'll probably hang on to these for a while. I really like them and they can have a few incidental uses too. I just can't cut these up for a pattern, although that CAN be done. Maybe I'll run across some like it that are all stained up! Those I can and will cut up!
Why didn't I think of cute hems like this for my girls? I sure sewed a lot of little pants! Why didn't I keep all those patterns too? I can use these to copy the hem to other patterns.
I can use them for a pattern for making some of the little pant/skirt combos that are currently popular.
I can use them to help with an idea of other things too. I saw a blog post about making baby tights without a pattern. These pants are a stretchy fleece and will most likely be a close fit to a baby's legs instead of a blousy fit from some of the patterns I have.
I can use them to size pants that don't have a size in them.
I can all do some measurements on them for selling baby pants. I don't have a baby fitting model as mine grew up!
And, who wouldn't like a pair of these for their baby or grand baby?
