So I’ve gotten a little behind on blogging. Today is day 4 of KCWC, but I’m blogging what I made yesterday on day 3. Yesterday’s project was a pair of pumpkin orange knit pants. They are meant to be skinny in the legs, but they turned out pretty baggy everywhere else. I guess it’s good that they are loose enough for her to move around in.
It’s a pretty basic pant from a self-drafted pattern. I was going to go full faux fly with a button closure, but I got lazy and switched to a flat front/elastic back waistband. The last knit waistband I made got a little slouchy, so this time I used a couple extra layers of knit and reinforced it with a few lines of stitching.
I added some striped knit fabric in the pockets and a couple of subtle stars – just for fun. Stars have kind of become my lil trademark. I’ve loved stars for a long time and I think I transferred that borderline obsession to Yuki :)
Yuki’s also wearing her Crossed Shoulder Vest (I re-did the shoulders to bring them in a bit) and those shoes were TOTALLY her pick. Guess she likes color :)
I realize that this is a very boy-ish outfit, but I like it. I think it suits Yuki’s personality pretty well and is perfect for school. It can, of course, be paired with other things if I wanted to “girly” it up a little bit. But she approved of it – so I’m happy :)
I have 2 more things left on my list that I’m hoping to finish. How’s your list coming along? Do you sew all the way through Sunday to complete the full week? Feeling tired or still pumped?
