Just Sew You Know #2

Filed under: Just Sew You Know,Sewing,Tutorials - 19 Jan 2015

It’s Monday! Time for the second installment of Just Sew You Know!

Today’s tip was a real forehead slapper once I figured it out!

When you line your pieces up together at the edge, it leave a gap at the top of your seam, creating an uneven edge. If you slide your top piece up until the edges meet at the width of your seam allowance, you’ll get a perfect edge! It’s easy as pie and makes such a nice edge!

Pine Cone Pants

Filed under: Sewing - 14 Jan 2015

I’m so excited to be kicking off the Wednesday tutorials for 2015 over at Riley Blake today! I thought we should start the year with a bang, so today I’m sharing a FREE multi-size pattern for pants!

The Pine Cone Pants are a basic, relaxed pant pattern with an elastic waistband and awesome back pockets!

My kids spend their days running, playing, and climbing and pants are often too big in the waist or don’t allow full range of motion of their legs for adequate climbing. I love that these allow them to move freely while looking stylish and adorable.

I designed these with a higher back rise to prevent our wee ones from prematurely impersonating plumbers.

Bottoms Up Pants

Sew Like My Mom | Bottoms Up Pants

My super awesome friend Jess has released her very first ever sewing pattern! I’m so so happy for her and very excited to be included on her first ever blog tour. These are the Bottoms Up Pants!

Jess is a cloth diaper Mama and wanted a great pattern for bottoms that allowed ample room for those precious cloth diapers. There aren’t too many out there yet, so she created one of her own, and I’m a fan! I think Ollie is, too.

I don’t have many pants for Ollie because he’s so tiny! We’re a month away from his second birthday but he weighs just 22.5 pounds and can wear a 12m onesie with 18m pants. Shrimpy McShrimperson. The overwhelming majority of RTW pants fall to his ankles or are huge in all the wrong places. I’ve got tons of adorable tops all waiting for the perfect pants and the Bottoms Up Pants are the perfect pair!

I added humongo pockets to the back of the pants because Ollie’s a pocket guy. The bigger the better in his mind, so I obliged. The pattern comes with an optional faux welt pocket but we opted for the real thing.

But that front pocket, it’s a cute one! The pattern comes with 2 front pocket options, one like this and one with a bow for the ladies. It also boasts a flat front and ample room in the rear. Just adorable!
