If you've been following Celebrate the Boy on Made, then I'm sure that you've seen Dana's fantastic tutorial on Kids Pants. Clark seems to run out of pants before anything else, so I decided to make up a pair for him. Normally, I don't like plain pants, but I love the slightly flared leg, and wide hem on these pants.
I ended up shortening Dana's pattern a bit, though I wish that I would have left the length for a wider cuff. Dana says that the pants fit a slim/tall 2-3 year old. My son is not quite two and a half, and normally wears a 2T in pants. These pants were a bit snug through the diaper area. If he were just wearing undies, they probably would fit a bit more comfortably.
To be quite honest, I didn't read her tutorial, and I took the liberty of using a 5/8 inch seam allowance. If I'd used 3/8 of an inch, they would probably have fit better through the behind.
Clark loves these pants. They must really be comfortable. I did sneak one small pocket on the back of the left side of the pants, unfortunately I wasn't able to get a clear shot of it.
Dana recommends doing two stitching lines on the hem of the pants. I recommend finishing the raw edge of the hem, turning the hem up, and then using a twin needle. Using a twin needle ensures that your stitch lines are uniform.
Never used a twin needle before? You can find more information on twin needle stitching here.
