KCWC has begun!
I decided to kick things off with something simple and practical – a pair of spring pants to match everything. This is my third time making the Oliver + S Sailboat pants, and it’s one of my favorite patterns – Lila lived in her Sailboats last spring and summer. And since she actually wore them (it’s getting rare around here nowadays, her wearing something I make), I didn’t deviate much from the pair I made last April, just sized them up.
Last year’s were definitely starting to show their wear. A little snug around the middle, too.
There, that’s better:
This time I hid some spots and butterflies inside and used square buttons, just to spice things up a little bit.
She says she likes them, so I’m calling Day #1 a success!
Pattern: Oliver + S Sailboat pants, size 3T
Fabric: Robert Kaufman Carolina Chambray in Light Indigo Washed (very soft and lightweight – my much overused favorite!) with Lizzy House’s Hello Pilgrim Butterfly facings
Okay, on to the next project!
