This is something you should probably mark on your calendars.  

Tree Climbing
– my daughter –
the dress wearing queen 
wanted to wear pants.


I have wanted to make her these cute pants for a while now.
I was afraid my efforts would sit in the drawer.
( I’ll make up words as I see fit)
My husband said, “Just make her some.  She’ll wear them.”


Noah's Ark

He was right.  
She loved them!
She wanted to wear them!


Pattern: Sophie by ModKid 
View C with View A Pockets
Fabric: Carnival Bloom Corduroy

The pattern was easy and fun to make.  I LOVE the detail of the twin needle on the pockets and leg slits.  I’ll have to get a close-up picture of that.  The only change I am thinking about for next time is adding a light weight interfacing on the front waist band.  She won’t wear jeans just yet – so I’m going to make another pair  but this time in lightweight cotton.  I have to say though, that the corduroy fabric (by Michael Miller) is da bomb diggity.

That’s right I just said bomb diggity.

And with that, I’ll say goodnight.

  1. Our princess looks great in her new, bright, pants. Yeah, Haley!


  2. Wow! Q.T.!!!! Love these pants and I’ve had my eye on some corduroy for awhile, I might have to do this for my little one (4). Thanks again for having my bag up for a contest! That was fun!


  3. All hail the queen! I think she’s going to have a hard time going back to dresses if those darling pants are her option.


  4. I will write this down! And Kyle ate a hamburger this summer right? Wow — your world is rockin’.

    Do they make those pants in extra large? :) I could use a pair.


  5. I love the pants….. after watching her RUN in plastic princess heels, up your carpeted stairs….. I thought she was a skirt wearer for all time! :) But how could she not love those pants? I agree with ‘LAW’ I want some too!


  6. FABOOOOO!!!!! great job!! she looks adorable!! I’ll also take some pants in big girl sizing :)


  7. Love the pants! I might just have to get that pattern and dive into garment making!

    I bet you’d enjoy it. For me it was the other way around. I had to make myself get into quilting. Garment making seems much more natural. :-)
