Couple Photos of Pants

Wow Captain Adorable looks like his father in the above photo! As promised, here are a couple of photos of the toddler pants being worn by the toddler. Yes, these are the pants I sewed for Captain Adorable while he and Captain Obvious were out of town for a night and here they are. I never said they were fashionable pants! These pants are made from an old tee-shirt of mine that I acquired the summer I was 20 (dude, 15 years ago!). I was doing a drama course in England. My classmates and I went to see a lot of plays by the Royal Shakespeare Company and I bought a shirt while I was there. I never wore it much, but I think the colors and the design are bright and cheerful enough for a pair of toddler pants. I wish I had not made the legs so wide. I thought they'd be far too long, but as it turns out, they are only a little long and I am not going to hem them further. I don't care that they are white, as I expect them to last only through the summer (perhaps the fall) as indoor lounge pants. Plus, they are made of tee-shirt fabric, and it is usually easy to get stains out of those!

those are brilliant. I have far too many t-shirts and constant requests for pants for the grandson. Tell me how you made them!
And what is there that you can't do?
hugs and love
