And.....We Have Pants!

My sister & I adhere to a $10 spending threshold for our kid's Christmas gifts. This year I decided to make pajama pants for my niece Rachel as well as a matching pair for her doll. Never having sewn from a pattern before, I had a lot of trial and error and gained a deep respect for accomplished seamstresses.
Rachel opened her pants on Christmas Eve but a glitch with my new serger meant that her doll's pants would be finished at a later date. Tonight I finished them and they are pretty adorable. The frosted donut fabric is a soft flannel and the lavender ribbon is grosgrain. Rachel's pants have a cuff that is a pink polka dot flannel.
My hats off to the women who sew with ease and confidence. I am getting there, slowly but surely.
