Recently I took a trip to the fabric store and ended up walking out with some fabric with coordinating colors but mismatched designs. I LOVE the colors yellow and gray together and I thought I could come up with something for the baby girl. I was thinking that maybe I could try a simple dress or skirt but she has more than enough that we don't even get to wear. I have seen these ruffle pants all over the internet lately and I just love how they look on little girls. I dug through her dresser and pulled out a pair of her pants to use as a pattern and that is how I began. I should have taken some pictures of the steps while I was sewing but I got so into it that I only have the end result. I ended up making pants that were a little too low on her little bum when she bent over and was crawling around so I improvised and added a sash for the top and took out my elastic that was around the waist. It ended up working out just as well and I think I even like them better with the added detail at the top. They fit her perfect and look so darn cute on her that I think I will try some more. Have a great weekend!!
This is the fabric that I bought. I bought about a 1/2 yard of each and didn't come close to using it all, especially the polka dot. I had a lot of that left.
Then before I show you how the pants turned out these are the pants that I used for a pattern. They also were an inspiration for this project.
This is how they turned out! I was happy with the result because I didn't know what they were going to look like seeing as though they were only my second sewing project for her. They gave me confidence to keep on trying different things.
I kept trying to take pictures of her but as you know with a 13 month old they don't like to sit still so I just snapped away while she climbed up and down her favorite chair. :)
