I've really wanted to get rid of some of my stash lately, and I've also recently cleaned up my craft room, so I can actually use it!  It's far more functional then it has been in over a year.   It's also been ages since I drafted a pattern from scratch, but I did on these pants.  I hate buying patterns, since I know what I'm doing (or did know... )  My kids are nearly the same size, so I made the pattern to fit the bigger one.  Well, I'm glad I sewed the littler ones pair first, because they *just* fit her.  I added the strips to the legs on the bigger ones pants, and they fit him nicely!  Both pairs have an elastic in the back of the waist band to keep the pants up.

The littler one:



The bigger one:




I'm glad I did these pants before I went and drafted and cut the dress I may actually make myself this year...  I will remember to add a good amount of ease (since I didn't add enough obviously on these pants... I may even get some muslin and do a test cut and sew too... Don't want to screw up the dress! LOL

Cute pants, they seem very comfy. The spider-man ones are my favorites.

Thanks!  It's a really nice way to use up small bits of fabric. The spiderman pants haven't come off since yesterday afternoon. He wants them as PJ pants I guess.  So they must be comfy!
