One of Mr. Baby’s first words was “airplane”. Followed quickly by “up.”
Anytime he heard one, he craned his neck upward: “Up.” And since we live vaguely under the O’Hare flight path, that happened a lot.
So when I saw airplane flannel on sale at the JoJo, I grabbed up a piece for him.
Pretty much fought with the cutting counter lady, who cut just under one yard when you accounted for crooked edges, hence the reason I won’t buy fabric there anymore.
Cut out the pants pattern for wovens, good old Simplicity 1564, in size L / 18 mos. Sewed totally according to the directions.
Just a single adaptation at the end.
Stuck a snippet of white grosgrain ribbon in the back of the pants in the spot where you sew up the elastic opening.
Such a nice tip I wish I could remember who to credit. But the point is it makes telling the front of baby pants from the back a snap.
I tried writing the size on the ribbon with a Sharpie but it ran right away.
Maybe I need a fabric marker, or some quilting ink for stamping?
