1  Girl Pants in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by FriendlyJas on: April 19, 2013 09:56:45 AM
I made some pants for my daughter and my niece. They are both a difficult fit due to having very large thighs. So, I made two styles of pants that worked better for their thigh issues.

I made these tiered pants. They ended up super cute. (The top is Mayfly's Smocket. http://www.themayfly.com/weblog/2007/02/happy_smocket.html)

And then I also made some of these super easy wide leg ruffle pants. (The hedgehog ones are about a size 7 and the pink/cupcake ones are about an 18 month size.)

2  Boy's Spring Pants and Ties in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by FriendlyJas on: April 19, 2013 09:50:34 AM
My boys asked me to sew something for them for Easter. I guess they get a little jealous that I make so many of their sister's clothes and not so much for them. So, I made some super cute and easy linen drawstring pants and some neckties. I misplaced my necktie pattern, so I had to wing it and reinvent the wheel. The new way is so much easier than my old way and much more durable for the little guys. (My boys very much dislike fake ties. They insist on real ties that actually tie. They're little old persnickety men.)

I also made my daughter a little peasant underdress with a ruffle and an apron dress to go over the top. She loved it.

3  Dortje Pants- BOY!!! in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by FriendlyJas on: September 20, 2010 08:59:25 AM
After I made the Dortje pants (from Sewing Clothes Kids Love) for my daughter, I was pretty convinced the pattern would work for boy or girl, even though the book specifically says they are "girl" pants. I had this adorable bottom-weight owl fabric that I was planning to make something cute for my son, so I made him some Dortje pants! I really think it turned out well for a boy. They are a little long. (Couldn't get him to stay still for a fitting. Roll Eyes) I'm washing them to see if they pull in any before I re-hem them. I added some olive green piping to the outer side seams and the front pockets to macho it up a bit. What do you think?

My model wouldn't quit dancing! Cheesy

4  Halloween Dortje Pants in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by FriendlyJas on: September 15, 2010 12:47:57 PM
I made my first item from Sewing Clothes Kids Love. I'm pretty excited about them. I only wish I had done them in a non-seasonal print so I wouldn't have to make more, but I guess I'll have to get back to it and make a couple more pairs for my girl. The pattern was not extremely difficult, but it is definitely not for beginners!
Do you think this pattern could be used for boy pants or is there something about it that makes it girly? (My son needs some pants and I loathe the no shape, elastic waist pants that you are expected to make for little boys.)
Thanks for looking!

5  A Pixie and A Couple Cows in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by FriendlyJas on: September 08, 2010 12:01:57 PM

Pixie Skirt. I made my own pattern. It is just a double layer twirly type skirt with an elastic waist. The top layer of the skirt is made with fabric "petals."

Cow Appreciation Day outfit. The shirt is store bought. I made the shorts (no pattern) and the bib (my pattern).

A-line cow dress made using the book "Absolutely A-Line." I made a boo-boo on the upper right "strap," thus the bow. I also made the outfit for the doll. No pattern. Just a quick A-line reversible top and some elastic waist pants.

Thanks for looking!  Smiley

6  Bright Double Twirly Skirt in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by FriendlyJas on: September 08, 2010 11:50:16 AM

I made this adorable double twirly skirt for my daughter. She wouldn't be still, so I only have action photos! She picked the fabric herself! I didn't use a pattern. If you want to make one yourself, House on Hill Road has a great tutorial for twirly skirts that you can use as a starting point! Thanks for looking. Smiley
