Pants for my baby…

Writing this post I am reminded of an important sewing tip – good patterns are amazing, and rare. I found what seemed to be a very simple pattern for a pair of baby yoga pants, but as soon as I began cutting I started to get a bad feeling, and as I started to sew, well, they are just… poorly designed.

It didn’t matter what I did, I realise now why pants and shorts have a seam down the front – otherwise they just don’t sit right. But sew and learn right? The experience prompted me to buy the Oliver&s pattern from last post, which can only be a good thing!

So here they are.

They are still cute – but I think that the pockets make them. And they weren’t part of the pattern, just something I thought would make them look better, and make me feel a bit better about them.

By September / October when the weather starts to get warmer they should fit perfectly. So a big lesson learnt this week – will stick to patterns and tutorials that make sense!
