Sydney's new Hoochie Momma Upside Down Bird Pants

Hmmmm.... there's a reason that I practice patterns first... Sandy (my dear customer who ordered the Robert Kaufman Sakura set a few weeks ago), asked me to make some more goodies for her daughter, Sam. She sent me some fabric to make 2 skirt sets and 2 capri/pant sets with ruffles at the bottom. I've never made pants before, so I figured I'd make a sample pair for Sydney with some fabric that Tara sent a couple of months ago.

At first glance, they look pretty cute, right?


Looking closer you'll see that yes, I laid out the fabric wrong! Urgh! I actually caught the mistake early on and the Type A person that I can be immediately wanted to ditch the project and start over. Then the Type B person that I can also be, took over and decided that well, it won't hurt for Syd to have some super cute play pants / pajama bottoms. So I continued...




All in all I was pretty pleased with these cuties... until I put them on Syd. When I held them up, the rise looked short to me... and well, it is. Looks like I'll have to tweak this pattern a bit to get the correct measurements for Sam. This definitely wasn't time wasted - gotta love the learning process :)

They turned out so well. You could say the birds were deliberately placed that way. I think I've done that many times and also sewn my appliques to the tags in my onesies!
