Mama-made pants

I am no pro sewer, and had never made pants before, but turns out, I had to. There really aren´t many choices when it comes to shopping for baby clothes around here, and honestly, I needed the challenge, boy needed pants and it was fun all the while! I was getting more and more "crafty" during my pregnancy, but since the bub came earthside, I had not yet found the time/energy to persue any project beyond keeping the house somewhat clean and tidy, having food on the table and keeping baby happy, fed, clean and warm. But thus no more! I am back! Sewing machine you are a good friend oh yes indeed. I wanted to make pants that woold be sort of "bloomers", so I followed this tutorial, omiting the ruffles and freestyling a bit here and there.
First I made these ones with a thrifted "horses on a landscape" cotton printed fabric. I´m actually very happy with how they turned out. I don´t know if you can notice from the photos, but the hoses are "feet-up" jeje, my bad, but hey, my mum saw them and realised: you made them like that so that Balthazar can see the horses right side up from up! Smart lady indeed.
And then I made these ones from a soft striped wool fabric. They´re nice and soft but the cut is a little off, I wasn´t really going for this aladinesque sillouette, but oh well. On other news, tomorrow is my birthday, and I am very proud to say I will be thirty. A thirty year old wife and mama, smile.
