I participated in KCWC a few weeks ago. I really like this challenge and I think this was my 3rd time sewing along. I had 3 projects I wanted to work on during the week. The first up was a pair of cargo pants for Lilly. Sewing pants for Lilly is a personal challenge for me. She doesn't like wearing jeans as they are hard to play in. I totally get it. So last winter I made her two pairs of corduroy and denim chambray pants. They seemed to be comfy and soft but because I made up the pattern from a pair of her fleece pants, the fit was off a bit. This time I used Oliver + S field trip cargo pants pattern. I love love love Oliver + S patterns, this was my 4th time sewing one of their patterns. I just love how easy the instructions are and the finishing touches make the garment look really polished.
Lilly's pocket pants!
Pattern: Oliver + S field trip cargo pants; size 6 with 2 inches added to bottom then a 2 inch hem
Fabric: cotton twill in khaki, Lilly wanted them exactly like the pattern picture
They fit her great and she has a ton of room to grow in these!
