KCW Oct 2015: Noah’s Black & White Pants

Yay! I made it! Today is the final day of Kid's Clothes Week, day 7. I’ve enjoyed it as always, but we’ve been busy with not much spare time for sewing – hence another easy project today!

Some simple black and white stripe harem pants for Noah!

I love how they turned out and so does Noah. I’m not really into track pants but I love pants like these that are both comfy and styly. The fabric is some lovely and thick cotton lycra that I bought from Levana during the school holidays. The tie at the top is made from an old knit scrap (off cut from my overlocker) that I’d saved. It’s just for looks as the waist is elasticated.

I used The Little Kiwis Closet Hip Hop harem pattern by Little Kiwis Closet as a base, but I modified it a bit. I didn’t do cuffs at the bottom and instead of a yoga waistband I used elastic (so added a bit of length to the top.) I also tapered the ankles a bit because I wanted that narrow/ fitted look.

I quickly whipped these up this morning and now Noah is out fishing with Andrew in them. The girls and I went out to the Keirunga gardens that was running it’s miniature railway/ ride-on trains over this long weekend. It’s a beautiful day in the Hawke’s Bay all round!

Next on the sewing list … is hemming the husband’s pants – not quite so exciting… and then I’ll finish a couple of custom orders.

What’s on your sewing list… or are you just glad to have got through Kid’s Clothes Week?

[EDITED to add – this pic of all my sewing from this KCW. If you missed any of my blog posts then check them out here.]
