I love how there are only 3 pieces to cut out. The bottom panel & two legs. Nice! If you don't embellish them they sew up super fast, if you add some pockets or cuffs you might add an extra ten minutes. At first I was really hung up on making the bottom panel a different fabric than the legs, which is a really cute look for a baby, but for my big two year old, I've been having fun leaving the three main pieces the same print and adding some details with cuffs and pockets (or not).
When I first bought this pattern - within about five minutes of its release - I was addicted to making these pants. I sold a few on etsy (some are still available HERE ) and made a lot more as gifts and for my own kids. I had a computer crash recently and have not had time to deal with photo recovery, so I figured I would make up a few pairs to show you how cool this pattern is.
Here's Will in a seersucker pair with embroidered sailboats (bought the fabric that way):
Here's the back and front of a pair made from some Heather Ross fabric - I left these plain.
Here is Will wearing the pair shown at the top, aqua corduroy trimmed in fishies. I winged it on pocket placement and they are a little too close to the front. Should have used Rae's handy free guide on pockets HERE.
And more fishies fabric - this time to make shorts:
And you can see lots more in the Big Butt Baby Pants Flickr pool.
