Ottobre 01/2010-13

Myra needed some hippy chick jeans to go with her crazy neon shirt, so I hunted through my Ottobre's to find a flare leg pant pattern in her size.
Perfect!  I LOVE the little pockets, which I think have a very 60s feel.  They are on the back as well.
I skipped the trim on the hems.  I wanted them to be a little more versatile.
But I did line the pocket flaps with the scraps of her shirt.  You can also see that I added some jean-style topstitching, which is all that "fly" is - topstitching.
The fit isn't perfect.  They are a little baggy up front,
but she has some serious gaposis in the back!  She was sleeping when I was making them, so I couldn't measure her waist, and I guess she's slimmed down a little since the last time I measured her.  I still think they are pretty darn cute, and will be a good addition to her wardrobe.  The pattern went together really quickly, since it is just a very simple pair of elastic waist pants with four patch pockets.  What's not to like?

  4. Love this cut from Ottobre. However, I had the same issue (gaposis). I cannot help but think that the crotch seam has to be shifted in these pants.
    Great topstitching, and the pants are cute.

  8. Cute little jeans. I used to make my daughters clothes when she was a little girl. When they get to be teenagers, they want RTW, so they look like everyone else. Enjoy sewing for your kids now, while they aren't peer conscious!

  11. So cute! It'd be awesome if as adults, it'd be adorable to get away with that back gaposis issue. I love the pink topstitching too.

  16. Very cute - the topstitching on denim is very effective. I just finished a pair of these two - with the bottom frills. They were quick to whip up (except the frills which were really fiddly - they do look supercool though.
