Mr. Baby was going to wear shorts for Christmas. This was certain. Ideally, they’d have flat fronts.
Flat-front baby pants, though, are hard to come by. So by December, I turned to eBay for this out of print number, Simplicity 2907, thinking these might actually be flat front. Or maybe it’d be easy enough to make the fronts flat using the technique from the above freebie since these pants are made from four pieces instead of two.
I had to try them out. I pulled some red corduroy from the stash that came years ago from the Ravenswood Manor yard sale.
I love them.
I cut the pattern as directed. When the instructions wanted the tiny pocket edges hemmed, I decided to line them with some cotton scraps so they’d have smoother, cleaner lines.
Lining in general was a smart move. But choosing black and white polka dots for the red pants was perhaps a misstep. Really cute print but shows more than I like.
Carefully topstitched the pockets, the leg seams, the hems.
My mister wonders if they’re too much for Mr. Baby to pull off? From what I know about this small person, there’s no way. Thinking to put them on him with a white printed shirt and some sweet black hightop Chuck Taylors.
