Sailor Pants…Take Me Away Tutorial

Over the next couple of weeks I will be showcasing a Spring Collection made for my 1 year old niece’s first birthday at my blog Me Sew Crazy, and I simply knew Sailor Pants had to be included in this little one’s wardrobe!

I tossed and turned, lost sleep, and day dreamed constantly trying to figure out in my head how to make these little guys…until finally, while putting my eldest daughter down to sleep one night, it came to me!

Now remember, I am a self-taught sewer…so for all of you professionals out there – I am sure there is some better, more professional way. But in the meantime, this is what I came up with that fateful night and I want to share with you :).

Of course, since these were made I have come across another way to tackle Sailor Pants using pockets…maybe I will give that a go one of these days :).

Until then…Happy Sewing!

Am I folding in the seam allowance on the button flap and inserting the interfaced flap? Am I folding in then laying the interfaced piece on top and stitching together? Or am I folding both sides of the button flap to one side (rather than into the center?

    I’m sure it’s simple answer…but I have a knack for making it complicated in my head. 😛 Help?
