I made my first pair of Oliver + S sailboat pants in April, and they’re by far the most practical and worn piece of clothing I’ve ever made for Lila. They’re comfy and they go with everything – if they’re not in the wash, she’s wearing them. I’ve had all sorts of ideas about what the next pair might look like, and as soon as I saw these beauties from Cirque Du Bebe, I fell in love. I had to try piping this time.
This is such a great pattern. You end up with a pretty cute pair of pants without doing much work at all. These are 2Ts, same as the first pair. The rise is a little bit low, and the fit is much better without a big cloth diaper. I’m sure this yellow print won’t get the wear the first pair gets, but you can’t be practical all the time.
Lila spent the afternoon on our neighbor’s front stoop, pestering Ruby the cat. Ruby is a very good sport.
The pants end up looking plain old yellow from far away, so maybe they aren’t all that impractical. And they match the neighbor’s house really well….
