Some days, my model likes to twirl and play in the perfect sunshine. Other days, she wakes from her nap cranky, it's pouring down rain, and she *insists* the only place she wants to go is....
It was a wild ride, so come along with us and I'll tell you about the Easy Fits as we go!
I made my 2T a pair of wide-leg easies out of this light weight stretch denim. (I suggested these were hearts, but she immediately corrected me and told me they were STARS. Did I mention she's 2?) I opted for the cuff-less pant length.
First thing you should know: This pattern is half-drafted. That is to say, there is a pattern piece for the booty-curve, and then a provided formula to calculate length of the pant leg. Which, in my experience, makes the "Easy Fits" a PERFECT fit. (Don't worry, if the sweetie you're sewing for isn't available for measure, there's a provided list of average measurements, too!)
You'll notice that the hem is really deep on these (2+ inches!). I'm excited about the prospect of lengthening these as she grows and getting a lot of miles out of them!
They were a super fast sew, stitched up in a single naptime. 'Nuff said, am I right??
Also on the "pros" list: there are no outseams to break up the pant print. (On a print of this small scale, it wouldn't really be noticeable, but if you wanted to do an applique or use a large print for these, it's useful to know there's no seam on the outside of the pant leg to break a sweat over!)
This is an excellent pattern for the beginner sewist. The tutorial is lengthy, and covers all things a first-time-sewist should know about pattern assembly.
I love that Ellen shared a ruffled capri length version! These two different style pants are very indicative in the variety of length, width, and finishing options suggested by the pattern. The UNISEX pattern, might I add. And since the pattern booty-piece I printed covers size 1-3, baby bro will be the next to sport the easies!
