Dress Pants

Can't believe it's been several months since my last blog post.  If you didn't know, baby #3 came in the beginning of March, so you can understand my lack of posting.  Plus, I've been preoccupied with facebook to tell you the truth.  It seems that for stay at home moms (or maybe just me).. it's an outlet to the world.  It's comforting to know that people are living exciting lives out there and doing crazy things.  I can live vicariously through you. :)  But sadly people have not been posted as often and I do find that I'm craving a connection with people again.  SO POST SOMETHING for me! :)

Anyways.. I've been keeping busy by spending my maternity leave crafting, baking and surfing the web for new projects.  A friend of mind gave me a lot of khaki fabric a while back and I wasn't quite sure what I would do with it.  So I took a tutorial from Dana and made Auggie some khaki pants.  It turned out wonderfully!  Eddie asked if I was going to put in some pockets, but I'm too lazy.  Instead I'd rather make several of these!

Ignore the unironed fabric. :)

The hemline. 

The elastic back and double stitched waistline.  Ignore my mail. :) 

I tried to put in a label, but it's kind of ugly because I sewed over it.  It was too large. haha

So it was my first experience at pant making and I've gotta say it was pretty easy!  But it could be that it's a super small pair of pants. :)
