Lately, I had the opportunity to test out some awesomely cute pants. They came out this week! Drum roll please… Big Little’s Pixie Pants! Aren’t they adorable? I think they are the sweetest thing ever, and they fit my Lillon’s personality perfectly. Sweet.
I think they are perfect for wearing with some warm tights underneath for fall or winter. They will probably need some REALLY thick tights if this winter is as cold as last. ( and a wool sweater, and fur boots, and a fur coat…) If it happens to be warm yet in your corner of the world there is a shorts pattern on the same lines that came out at the same time.
You can see Lillon is quite pleased with them. They fit nicely and are comfortable for running and playing. I like the flat waistband in the front and the elastic in back. It has a nice clean look while still leaving some room to grow.The Pixie Pants have a pocket option, so I went with it. Every kid loves pockets!
The instructions were simple and easy to follow. I didn’t have any trouble getting them together except for some absentmindedness while sewing on the pockets. I forgot to mark where I supposed to stop sewing on the pockets and ended up with some confusion and seam ripping a few steps later. It pays to read the directions well! I am slowly learning this lesson. Until then, my seam ripper is my best friend when I sew.
I think these would look really cute in corduroy or a plaid print wool for winter with a warm sweater. Lightweight materials would be great for summer. Oh the possibilities!
