Mr. Yazoo has a couple of really nice t-shirts that he’s never going to wear because they’re not his style, so since I had won a copy of Growing Up Sew Liberated (which has a lot of knit fabric projects) from Sew Mama Sew, I made Sunshine a pair of the bubble pants in the 12-18 month size. (He’s seven months old, but I like his clothes to last. 😀 ) I was shocked when I pulled out the pattern sheets — they’re HUGE! I used almost all of Mr. Yazoo’s t-shirt for them, and I didn’t even have enough to make the lining! That’s okay, though, since it’s never winter here and my little heatball kids don’t need multiple layers of clothes.

I guess the pants don’t look so huge in this picture. The elastic cuffs are awesome. But wait! Cosmo fits them, too! O_o

When he was walking around later, he looked like he was wearing those guy harem pants I was seeing a while ago. Hehehe.

It was awesome how easy these pants were to sew. They were so enormous that I didn’t worry about seam allowances, and Gracie Lou Freebush and I happily serged away. Then since I didn’t have a lining to form the elastic casings, I sewed on the extra little orange bits.

My dad offered some t-shirts so I could make more. Now I just have to reclaim my pattern pieces from Cosmo — he found them the next day and used them for coloring paper. 😀

  1. Great job on the kiddo pants! I had fun looking around at some of your other 2011 finishes, too. 🙂 Thanks for linking up to Craft Buds.
