Once again, I turned to one of my favourite sewing books for a little inspiration: Anna Maria Horner's Handmade Beginnings. Of all the projects in that book, the Quick Change Trouser pattern is the one you're likely to see most often on the sewing blogs of the world. Surprisingly, I hadn't tackled it myself - until now.
It's a pretty easy pattern to whip up. So, I made TWO pairs of pants for the little guy.
Actually, since these are reversible, it's almost like I made him FOUR pairs of pants! I took pictures of the back to show off the contrasting fabric I used on the back yoke of each. The double layers should keep the babe nice and warm and the roomy seat should be big enough to handle his cloth diapers with ease [I hope!]
|Side #2...Used different fabrics on the reverse side of one pair to change things up a bit.|
The next challenge will be getting out to see the new baby before he gets to big for these pants!
