Today I made another pair of pants for Frida from the “Vilkas” pants pattern.
This time I used fine corduroy only, which has no stretch at all. They fit fine, but I may make them slightly higher at the waist next time. As I did last time, I cut up the pattern for these as well (you should see my pattern – it looks like a jigsaw puzzle by now…) – only differently. I wanted to spice up the plain corduroy with some fabulous printed corduroy – also found in the new line from “Stof og Stil”. I think I’ll use that same fabric for making Ronja a pinafore dress – but that’ll be some time soon.
I went a little crazy with the topstiching… I don’t know if it shows above, otherwise maybe you can see it more clearly here:
Maybe it’s too much? Maybe I should’ve used a contrasting thread? You be the judge. 🙂
It’s adorable! I would love to see it in a contrasting thread, though. Why not? Great fabrics!
These are great. I love the topstitching too. Great fabrics.
I think the topstitching looks fantastic. I love the pants very much, I know DD would too since she loves purple.
Karen – thanks! I think you may be right about the topstitching… 😉
Sandra – thank you so much – and welcome! 🙂
Yvonne – Thank you! 🙂
Clever and adorable. I’ll bet she loves them.
Its_Lily – Thank you! The pattern actually is a new favourite in this house… Great fit, and they don’t drop down, like other pants models. Whether she loves them – she’s kind of secretive about that… 😉
