My mom has lots of fabric scraps. She's the kind that hates to throw things out. So she saves little scraps from things she's made.
I came upon scraps of this great green cordoroy that I just wanted to use. But none of the scraps were big enough to use. Not even for my little baby.
But I didn't let that get me down. I pieced them together. Then I used a pattern to cut them out. Once you've cut them out, pants are so easy. Three seams and they're together: two to sew the sides together and then one long seam around the inseam.
I used a wider elastic for the waist because wider elastics are easier on tummies. (Pregnancy taught me this.)
I simply serged the hem. Next time I'll give it a real hem because I could have used the extra fabric when she grows. They seem to grow longer before they grow wider.
I really like how the seams turned out. It's kinda fun.
