Rosebud pants chain production
What to do when the fall comes faster than you can sew and letting your little one run around naked is not an option? You optimise the process. Standardize it. My interpretation of it was to cut 4 of the beginner-friendly rosebud (ruusunnuppu, seen here already) one-piece pant pattern and sew them all up one after the other within an afternoon in red, grey, blue and black. I know, real standardizing would have meant making them all in the same color but that would have been too boring. The pants have an elastic waistband, no side seam and a gathered dart at the ankles that I guess is supposed to look like a rose bud. I made them in velour as per pattern and decorated a bit with some woven ribbons and that’s it. The fabrics and notions are from the Holland market.
My DD won’t be running around naked (or so I feel) and I can now take my time to make her some more elaborated pants, each from a different pattern! Or do the same with another pattern, like the Milla from the latest issue…
I used the overlock stitch of my sewing machine on these as well. Although I prefer french seams, I think I’ll use it again for other knit projects.
