and its about 3 inches to short. I thought i might be able to just pick up and knit around the bottom to make it longer, but there are 2 rows of k1p1 rib there...will this work? Does anyone have any suggestions or should I just start over and do a longer bottom part? And if it helps to stop the rolling at the bottom, that would be awesome too. I was stash busting some Caron Simply Soft and it only took 3 days off and on to do, so its not a huge loss. I was just looking forward to wearing it this weekend. Thanks guys!
These pants are absolutely amazingly comfortable! I cant believe it actually took me this long to sit down and sew them! I used http://www.mediatinker.com/blog/archives/008262.html to make them, and it really turned out pretty good. I did shorten the length though, cuz it's just too dang hot for pants right now. The first ones I made are the flowery knit material ones and are super lightweight in this heat, and super stretchy. I got confident at this point and made the black ones, which I think I am going to have to re-do or something. I forgot to allow for the not-stretchiness (is that a word?) of the black fabric, and they are kinda tight around the legs. Maybe its just me though lol. The pattern says its a one size fits all, which is pretty much true around the waist, but you might want to double check the leg width measurements before you cut. I made both pairs of these in a few hours last night, and it would have gone much faster if I didn't have to hand sew everything. I'm usually a knitter, so I don't sew very much, and feedback is always welcome.
My son, the helper... Just a quick question, how do you guys think it would turn out if I made a really small pair of these pants for him? He's in size 24 months now...Might have to sit down and work that out, cuz they would be pretty cute on him, and not too hard either.
I have alot of Sugar and Cream 100 percent cotton yarn and I am so over making dish clothes. Does anyone out there in craftster land know what else I can make with it? Thanks alot guys! And if this is already posted somewhere else...Im sorry...
Sorry you cant see the straps all that well, My mom was dead set against her face being in the pics! lol
This was my first zipper, if it looks like I did something wrong, let me know, I didnt have any idea how to do it and pretty much just guessed. There was a pretty big gap between the edge of the bag and start of the zipper, I just stitched it closed, no big deal to me, but my stepmom wants one now, and I would like it to be as good as possible...Any Feedback, Ideas, and Suggestions are welcome!
ok, My mom is the luckiest person on earth! She went to a yardsale last week and bought a box of patterns. The lady said that if she took the whole box it would only be five dollars... And there were 63 different patterns!! OMG! So, my mom, like the smart person she is, grabbed it and ran. lol. Anyways, most of the patterns were already cut to 16-18, so too small for her, just right for me. She gave me first dibs on what I wanted and I made these skirts off of one of the newer simplicity patterns. Feedback is welcome, These are the first skirts I have ever made.... ignore my big belly and stretch marks, lol, my son is almost 2 and i still need to lose the baby weight...
This is a close up of the fabric on the last one. I LOVE this fabric. I bought it at a second hand shop for 1.75 and there was almost 3 yards. I have been hanging onto it for months, afraid to cut it. I am really glad I waited, Its my fave of the 3. The first one was how the pattern actually came out, but I thought it was a bit to long. The last 2 still need to be hemmed and the elastic put in the waist. Soooo, what do you think?
Ok, this is my first post, and the first pants I have made. ( I am a clothing newbie. ) I followed a tute from http://www.rookiemoms.com/make-some-easy-kids-pants, except my hubby wouldnt let me cut up his shirts . So...... I modified it and used leftover material from the kitchen curtains.I also gave them a drawstring instead of elastic. Yay me! So now my bouncing baby boy has Aloha Pants! I think he likes them. But maybe he just likes to chew the drawstring! lol. I was just really flying by the seat of my pants on this one, if any one has any comments or suggestions let me know. I didnt really want them to be so wide legged as they are!
