Remember that time I sewed the trim to the yoke of my pants leg, serged it, topstitched it, then realized that I did it to the WRONG SIDE of the fabric? (I vented about this on Instagram. My followers there see all of my craft fails.)
Well I ripped all those seams and put them back together the right way...and now they are the coolest pants! The pattern is The W Pants pattern by Blank Slate Patterns. Making a pair of real jeans, complete with a zipper, pockets, zipped welt pocket in the back, and a super cool yoke detail, makes me feel like I can sew anything.
I used the trim from a scrapped zipper to give the yoke on the pants a bit of zing. I also used pink girly fabric for the insides of the pockets...just because I can.
The shirt is another Recess Raglan by See Kate Sew. I think these are all Ellie will wear once the weather cools down. This one is made entirely of thrifted materials (but I promise if I find some Dr. Seuss knit yardage I will let y'all know!)
Ellie has plenty of room to grow in these because she's so slim. When she tried on the pants at first they were a good 4 inches too long, so I folded them up 2 inches, pressed, folded again 2 inches and hemmed. Hopefully she'll wear these pants a long time!
