This time I used a red and pink abstract designed fat quarter to sew the Boot Cut Heaven by Amy Sue Adams of Made for Dolls.
This pattern is a doll pants pattern with real inset pockets! OMG! You can put stuff in the pockets!!
The thing I love about Made for Dolls patterns is that the pieces fit together like a dream!
I have a strange story to go with these pants. I had cut the pants, and I was sitting down to sew by sunlight. I pinned my pocket facing and began to sew. I was wondering why the piece didn't fit perfectly together. Well, guess what? I had sewn the pocket facing to the crotch of the pants! Lol.
Well as I was picking the seam, the the light bulb on my sewing machine flickered and went out. I thought, Well I had better learn to change the bulb. At least, I can keep sewing! Well my son went to turn on the light and NO POWER AT ALL! It was out until after midnight.
Saturday, I got up and got ready to finish the pants. Got almost done and realized I needed the right sized elastic. Well, someone had stolen my tire and lug nuts off my car!! No shopping today!
Anyhow, here is the pattern as much as I have completed. I will be adding elastic after I get my tire fixed so I can get to the store.
Anyhow, here are the pants!
And I love doing pockets. Look! My topstitching is getting better!!
When I posted in the sewing group, I was told how cute it would be to make a triangle scarf and fringe bag for the doll! I could totally dress the doll like the girls in the Disney Channel Original Movie The Color of Friendship. (I absolutely LOVE that movie! If you haven't seen it, check it out next February! I insist!)
If you love this pattern, you can buy it from her Craftsy shop: http://www.craftsy.com/pattern/sewing/clothing/boot-cut-heaven/103587
I will update this post when I get elastic!
I thought I should mention that I tested this pattern and so it was free for me, but my opinions are still my own. I really do think these pants are cute!!
