I mentioned the other day that there was a pattern release coming, well here it is!
Our popular grow-with-me harem pants pattern, P is for Pirate pants, is now available in a newborn to 6 months size and it’s available for pennies! (if your little is bigger than 6 months, check out our P is for Pirate Pants pattern, it is a one-size grow-with-me pattern that fits from around 6 months to four years-ish)
I sewed these little samples up with the hand printed fabrics that I made last week and I love how they turned out.
OK, enough prattle, let’s get to it!
You will need:
- Grow-with-me baby harem pants pattern (NB to 6 months).
- 1/4 a meter of knit fabric (Cuffs and waistband need to be a blend with some lycra, spandex, or elastane so the pants will stay up. The rest of the pants can be any knit you like, great for up-cycling t-shirts and things 🙂
To start, lay the pants pieces right sides facing and sew the center back and front seams.
Then rearrange the pants so they look like the pic above and sew the crotch seam.
For the waistband, fold it right sides facing, with the stretch of the fabric running crosswise and sew as shown.
Do the same with the cuffs.
Fold one cuff back on itself so that the seam is in the middle.
With the pants still inside out, insert the cuff into the ankle of the pants lining up the raw edges and sew, gently stretching the cuff to fit the pants ankle.
Repeat this process with the other cuff and the waistband.
Turn right side out, and then your done. Super quick and easy right?
Fold the cuffs and waistband down for a newborn, and adjust the length as they get older.
If you make some baby pirate pants, be sure to grab some pics and hashtag them #SEW4BUB I would love to see your creations!
As always, thanks for reading.
