Three butterflies on a tulip

December 29, 2010

Next in the “pants for DD” series: the tulip pants, also from Ottobre. They do look like a tulip somehow. They’re so cute! And after the raspberry pants, they’re really not that elaborate. I chose this pattern because of its obvious girliness, in a try to balance out the rather dull color of the cord. I also embellished it with butterflies from remnants of this Bizzkids dress and Strauss poplin dress, with the same purpose. And with success.

The legs are gathered, with the gathering line higher in the front than in the back. The back pockets have pin tucks. The pants also feature a back yoke, front pockets, front zipper, adjustable elastic at the back of the waist. I finished them with french seams. I was a bit anxious at the idea of sewing zippered pants for DD but with the elastic in the back, she can pull them down without opening the button and zipper. This is the sixth pattern I make from this issue, and I have at least another one planned. The button is a spare from some RTW garment. I collect them 🙂

    I love how these turned out! The pocket flaps are adorable, and the butterflies give that not-very-girly-corduroy the perfect amount of girlyness. 🙂 She’s going to want another pair when she outgrows these. 😉
