So after making these sweet little newborn pants the other day and discovering that they fit Olivia, I thought I'd make some more. But longer this time.
Here's how they turned out:
Here's how the two compare in length:
To make them long enough for Olivia, I just added 5 inches to the bottom of the pattern. Easy peasy. So here you can see both pairs of pants next to the pattern to get an idea for the length difference in the pattern vs. the length difference in the finished pants. (The plain white space without any lines at the bottom of the pattern piece is the part I added on.)
And here's where you can really put things into perspective; here's the difference on Olivia...
Newborn size straight off of Rae's pattern with no alterations:
Olivia size--a.k.a. newborn size with 5" added to the bottom:
Uhh... Olivia was a little hyper when I was taking these pictures.
Oh, and, by the way, she's wearing her cloth diapers in the pictures here of both pairs of pants.
So there's totally plenty of bum room.
Although it does take a bit of manuvering to get them on with the cloth diapers.
I love this picture. It's like she's doing a little jig. :)
Anyway, I am totally loving Rae's awesome baby pants pattern. It's so simple and sweet. And so easy! Thanks Rae! I think next up I may try a pair of lined pants to keep those sweet little legs warm this winter. We'll see how it goes. :)
P.S. Be sure to check back a little later this afternoon to link up What You're Giving Yourself for Christmas this year and to see some awesome hair accessories. :) See you (again) soon!
