So excited to announce that the Parsley Pants pattern is finally here!
The Parsley Pants pattern is a basic pant made with just one pattern piece, making them so ridiculously easy and quick to sew! The basic version features an elastic waistband, but even the extras (flat front, pintucks, pouch pockets, box pleat pockets, kneepads and the tuxedo stripe) take very little time to add. You’ll be amazed at how quickly these come together!
The pattern instructions and illustrations are thorough and easy to follow, thanks to the amazing job my sister Elli did on the layout (Click here for a peek at the instructions).
The pattern comes in kids’ sizes 2-10 and is intended for children who are out of diapers, though I did design them with a bit more room for diapers in sizes 2 and 3. Cloth diapers might be a bit tight, though, as my goal was to keep the fit trim enough that they would look great both as a pajama pant and as an everyday pant. By the way, if you’re sewing for diapered babes, you should definitely check out my Big Butt Baby Pant pattern!
The main pattern piece can be easily cut along the tuxedo stripe line and spread apart for children who need a bit more room in the hip, or taken in along the same line for skinny kids. I’ll try to post a tutorial on this soon!
The Parsley Pants have been seen previously on my blog in the following posts:
Coming soon…Parsley Pants (this post talks more about the pattern if you’re looking for more information)
Here’s a quick look at some more versions of the Parsley Pant I’ve made recently! First up, a yellow plaid pair for Elliot with a flat front and kneepads…
A green pair for Elliot with pouch pockets and kneepads (by the way, I named the pants “Parsley” because I LOVE GREEN PANTS!)…
A pajama pant (this is the easiest version of Parsley, a full elastic-waist pant) as part of a set along with a Charlie Tunic pajama top for Clementine…
And a few more pairs, not yet blogged, that you can see in this pic:
As usual, this pattern is BRAND NEW, so if you find any mistakes or have any issues, please email me!
Thanks to Elli and all of my testers who provided awesome feedback to make this pattern the best it could possibly be. You can see their versions in the Parsley Pant Photo Pool:
I can’t wait to see all of the great versions of the Parsley Pants you guys make!
