I wasn't giving up on making pants for Kail though so I sewed up the "Mr. Two Faced" pants which came with smaller dimensions.
These are the 12-18 month size. I didn't have two contrasting knit fabrics so I just used one fabric. Now, this is a cute pocket! These were fun and EASY to make. No hemming required on these super casual pants. I used a 70/12 ball point jersey knit needle and set a zigzag stitch at 3.0 long and 1.0 wide. I also top stitched all the seams down to make them more comfortable. I'll be making more of these. I just wish I could find some affordable and cute cotton knit fabrics for boys. Slim pickings out there for the guys.
All this knit sewing is making me think I need a serger...
Tip: To make the pocket, I used double sided, light weight fusible web, and fused the two fabrics together. To get the pocket to stay put while I sewed it on, I used Elmer's washable school glue and a hot iron instead of using water soluble basting tape (which the book calls for). The glue washes right out after laundering.
Here's a silly picture of the boy flying. Such a happy kid, kicking back in his Jams. The 80's are back and he's styling!
