In fact, I used the same pattern pieces I cut out for my weekend sewing. I pleated the front of the pants (tutorial here) and left the cuffs off. I finished the pants off following the trouser instructions.
The shorts are sewn from a stretch drill. I didn’t realise it was stretchy until I had washed it so pressed on with fingers crossed. The front of the waistband is sewn from non-stretchy chino drill for a bit more stability. And some pink. I sewed a size 2T for my tiny girl, with size 3 length.
I think they’re sweet. Elena approves. She will grow out of this pink stage, right?
Hugo’s turn tomorrow.
