You might remember that nearly two years (how?!) after I’d sewn the slip ago I said next up would be the pants, then I promptly got distracted and never got around to finishing them.
In fact, I pretty much forgot about them until I recently had a bit of a clear out and found them pre-cut with the pattern in my sewing stash. So, with a bit of time to spare on Saturday morning I thought I’d give them a bash.
They took about an hour in total to sew, which I didn’t think was too bad for a little morning sewing project and it was all very straight forward.
The only thing that irked me somewhat was that I’d bought the kit from Gertie’s Etsy way back when but there wasn’t enough stretch lace to go round the leg holes (is that even a technical term?).
I did have a big bag of bits of lace and elastic my Nana had given me a few years ago so I did manage to find some, unfortunately it isn’t matching but it looks okay.
The pants came out really well.
I am just now trying to figure out how my bum is going to fit in them, having any kind of small clothing item fit you in the future when your preggo tummy resembles an ever expanding planet is a hard thing to come to term with(!).
One thought on “All Sewn Up: Butterick B6031 – Patterns By Gertie: The Pants”
They look beautiful and at least you can wear them post baby!
I’m glad you called them pants too…..there’s something about adults using the word panties that creeps me right out!
