Last july i bought a book, Metric Pattern Cutting for childrenswear and babywear by Winifred Aldrich, great book!
My intention was that when we moved into our new house, that i would have hours of time at my disposal to go with my specially dedicated studio room to learn how to cut patterns from this book.
However, this past week i have been giving it a shot, just a hour or so at a time, while the little one has a brief cat nap, and i am so proud of myself to have created from scratch, a very very simple pants pattern! i have made them to be drawstring genie pants, i'm so chuffed. I know i could have just bought a pattern, or perhaps even just winged it, its so simple, but what i have now learnt, is some good foundations. Very pleased with myself.
These are a tad too boofy, making her look a bit meaty in the thigh department, so i will adjust the pattern, but these are some pj bottoms for the summer..
