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.
In this post I want to show off this pair of harem pants made from a lovely silk blouse from Monsoon that was just never very flattering on me. My loss is Bess’ gain.
These pants fit her perfectly at the moment and I love to see the fabric again in this cute revised version. It gives me a lot of joy.
This is the first in a little series of post about items I have refashioned into harem pants for my daughter. I would be so happy if you would come over and ‘like’ my Facebook page and leave my a comment about your own refashions.
