20 year old t-shirts to kids harem pants refashion

with 2 Comments

This is the third instalment of the harem pants refashions and I am simply going to copy in the explanation from the first and the second one.

This is again another refashion from a pattern and the pattern in question is the Ottobre Design Autumn 4/2012 (7) Harem pants for toddlers. I love this pattern. The pants are awesome and it is so easy to use the pattern for refashions of particularly t-shirts and beautiful cotton prints that are not stretchy at all. Let’s face it – my daughter only need so many dresses and skirts. Trousers are still the most practical thing for her to wear and by using this pattern on beautiful fabric I get lovely pants that sit very baggy and look a bit like a skirt. As you can see at the bottom of the post we now have a massive pile of these. Before leaving Denmark I had a weekend where I cut out loads of fabric and clothes items for refashioning that I had lying around. A lot of it was cut out for this harem pants pattern. I stacked it neatly in piles for the sizes 1.5 y, 2 y and 3 y. Then I was so lucky that my sister and mother had a go at sewing some of these together for me.

So this time the refashion really had a bit of a special meaning for my mother as it was her old t-shirts that were being refashioned. When I was a kid myself we lived in Swaziland (a small kingdom bordering South Africa). Swaziland is home of some amazing handicrafts. These t-shirts, which my mother brought back with her are screen printed and beautiful. The only problem was that none of us wanted to wear them as t-shirts anymore.

    I just found your cute harem pants on Pinterest- They caught my eye because I'm planning on making some for our baby boy for him to play in when we move to Swaziland later this year!
