I love the look of these pants but sadly the smallest size off the pattern I have is still a tad too big for my little girls. M was swimming in the pants when I had her try them on yesterday. I might try using wider seam allowances when I sew another pair and see if that helps with the fit. I should have taken a picture of the inside. I sewed at my parents' house yesterday so I took advantage of the serger and finished all the seams and the inside is as tailored as the outside!
I've been hauling patterns/fabric back and forth to my parents' house trying to get excited about sewing fall clothes. Eh, it hasn't really happened. I signed up to play the Stash Game over at sewingmamas so that's put any plans of starting fall sewing into a holding pattern until Sept.1. I do have a few projects to tide me over...a backpack for M for Kindergarten and finishing a smocked top. The backpack is cut out but I need a few things from the fabric store (piping, heavier interfacing, buckles) before I start on it. The top's smocking is done which is half the battle. Now I need to cut out the other pattern pieces and sew it together. I haven't tackled blocking and sewing a smocked insert yet. Usually, I hand that off to my mother and let her do it. It'll be fun to to work through the process and learn how to do it myself.
