Mending is not my favorite thing to do.
Most clothes that need to be mended end up outgrown before they are fixed. I dearly love the Nightingale Tunic I sewed in 2010 but the zipper broke at some point and the top was tucked into my mending basket. There it languished until my early January sewing room clean out.
Luckily, the tunic still fits!
The original matching pants were outgrown by both girls in early 2011. But I did have just enough leftover dark blue corduroy in my stash to make a new pair of pants.
This pair is the same size (4 with 5 length) as the khaki pair I shared previously. I did do 1/4" seams to allow BK's rounder body a little more room. She doesn't need the extra length like MG so these pants have a 2" hem.
I placed the pockets (view 2, I believe) on the back and did them with a lining similar to the Oliver + S Sandbox pants' back pockets.
Recognize the lining fabric?
Plenty of room to play in these pants!
