kcwc: foxy pocket pants

My first Kids Clothes Week Challenge creation. These are the pocket pants pattern from Meg’s book Growing Up Sew Liberated. I sewed a size 3T given her recommendation of sizing up for cloth diapers.

This pattern is excellent, full of lovely little details like the bias-binding around the pockets and contrasting waistband. There is so much reinforcement going on when sewing the “No Itch” seams, that these are truly built to last.

I really appreciated her method of attaching the pants cuffs. It’s simple yet brilliant really, as the cuffs can be let down as the child grows, extending the life of the pants.

Yeah. No letting down necessary in this house. I could tighten the elastic and shorten the pants (or…any ideas?), or save these for the future. What do you think?

Pattern: Pocket Pants from Growing Up Sew Liberated (size 3)

Fabric Main: men’s repurposed cargo pants (I had to do some slight piecing to make it work)
