  • Flat Front Pants

    And once I get REALLY good I’m going to add those stinkin’ pockets.   Flat front pockets for my flat front pants!

    Got a little sewing crazy last night and started this project around 11pm.  After browsing the internet I finally found a tutorial that was comprehensive enough for this novice.  
    Results:
    Very cute.
    A little long.  But that’s because I used the wrong set of pants to cut the pattern from.  Uhg.
    He didn’t seem to mind, though.
    I tried to be creative and chose a contrasting thread.
    It worked.
    Practice, practice, practice.  Although, I must say that this was one of my funnest projects to date.  Why?  Because from start to finish it was all me.  I traced his pants, cut the pattern out of old Christmas wrapping paper, picked my practice fabric, chose the thread.  I did it all on my own.  Felt kinda good to be brave.  Two hours and 1am later….I was done.  And my poor son will never know that I was measuring his little waist while he slept.  Yes, I’m such a desperate seamstress.
