Newborn Pants

August 31, 2014

Stash busting and upcycled newborn pants

Made before the baby arrived, not because ‘J’ needs some pants. We already had lots of baby clothes (gifted, brought, handme downs…) but i was itching to make something, so these super simple and easy pants were the result.

Used some of my half metre fabrics (which i brought long time back… without anything in mind), actually they take less than half metre. The blue one is made from the sleeves of a linen shirt from the donate box. Its ‘A’s shirt brought before our marriage though a bit faded, in perfect condition. The other 2 are cotton, while the brown one is very soft, the black is a bit stiff.

Here is the linen one in action on ‘J'(love the peeking baby feet) She is wearing a pre fold diaper with a cover under those pants.

Pattern: Basic Newborn Pant from madebyrae (free pattern)
Fabric: cotton and linen (stash and upcycled shirt)
Notions: 1/4″ elastic
Modifications: Added a bit of length for the linen pant
I love this pattern as its free, only one pattern piece, easy to make, easy to dress (as there is no definite front and back), fits over cloth diaper, extend the legs a bit and they will last for couple of more months.

    The pants are adorably cute! There’s plenty of room for her to grow into them too šŸ™‚
