I borrowed my post title from a song by one of my favorite musicians, Adrienne Young .
I made these cute little corduroy britches for a new little one that will be born soon. They are sized for a toddler, so he will wait a bit before he can wear them. While I love baby clothes, I have a hard time making things for itty bitty babies because they grow so fast. It’s hard for me to put so much time into making something that will only be worn a few months.
I loved making these pants. The pattern is from the Autumn 2009 Ottobre. I know I’ve said it before, but I love making clothes from their patterns. I have never had any trouble understanding their directions. There were several details in these pants that scared me at first, including an adjustable waistband. Now that I have toddlers myself, I understand how handy an adjustable waistband can be. I was pleasantly surprised to find that making a waistband adjustable is very easy.
The only alteration I made to the pattern was that I hemmed the legs up a couple of extra inches because I felt like they were way too long. However, this baby is a third child and both of his older siblings are tall and skinny so I tucked the extra fabric under instead of cutting it off so that they can be let out if he outgrows the length before he outgrows the waist.
