Cute, no? When I first saw the pattern here, I thought the ties were cute but I thought I’d prefer buttons. What was I thinking? First of all, buttons are more work. Second of all, I like that it gives a little peek at the contrast fabric. I obviously made the ties a bit wider and longer than the original. I might play around with that on the next one.
I see lots of these in the near future. Next time I will remember to sew the pocket on before I sew the two main pieces together. Since I wanted the pocket but also wanted it reversible, I ended up sewing the pocket on by hand through the opening at the bottom for turning. I will make some baby bloomers instead of the pants for summer. Maybe with a ruffle or two in the contrast fabric?? ::hee, hee::
When I showed it to my husband after I finished it, he said, “Wow, that’s cute and it looks easy. That’ll make a great gift.” Gift? Oh, you mean I should be making some for other babies? Yep, I’ll get right on that. Just as soon as I finish the other 4 I had planned for Sarah. 🙂
