Thrifted blouse to kids harem pants refashion

with No Comments


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

This time the item that needed refashioning into harem pants for Bess was a lacy blouse I bought on a thrifting trip years ago. It was always meant to be refashioned – but it wasn’t originally meant for something for Bess. This is a bigger size that the last one and she probably won’t wear it just yet. I recently bought her some lovely soft organic wool/silk leggings that will be very nice under these if they happen to fit her in winter.
