Pants! I made some!

Using this super-easy tutorial, I whipped up some pajama pants for my ever-growing 3-year old. Yay, me! As part of the process, I:
  • rethreaded my serger.
  • made a garment without a pattern.
  • sewed with jersey.
...all things I've been kind of intimidated to do. I tried jersey (relatively successfully) one other time but this garment actually has finished hems so I figure I'm getting better.

Oh! And! Notice how the front waistband is a little lower than the back? I'm so fancy.

  1. Hooray! Congratulations for getting past your fears. That's cool that you have a serger. I've never used one!

  2. You are fancy!! Good work, I'm impressed with all your three things :) PS We're featuring you tomorrow on Fabric Tuesday.

  3. Good for you!! I'm super impressed - jersey makes me want to hide under my sewing desk and not come out until it's far, far away :)

  4. You *are* fancy! I have sewn with jersey a few times, with relative success. It wasn't as hard as I thought, but at the same time I didn't find it quite as easy as everyone else claims. I think it's actually just more forgiving than "easy" - at least for me! :)

    And this reminds me that I need to get moving on some leggings for *my* ever-growing 3 year old!

  5. Facing some fears helps you to face others I have found. You will be a fearless woman before too long! Lovely work and I'm sure your 3 year old will appreciate lovely warm pants.

  6. You are far more brave than I. I sew skirts for my girls, but I'm terrified of pants. Great job!

  7. Thanks for coming over Felicity..and your kindness!

  8. Yeah, congrats! Thanks for linking up to Quiltstory!
