Kate has been inspiring me with her versions of the Dortje pants.
So I grabbed some cord and poplin and have set to work to make some pants for kinder.
Yep - they are kinda bright - but I think that clothes for play should be fun and colourful as well as comfortable and practical.
I don't believe in children being dressed as miniature adults - there's plenty of time for that later in their lives.
Now is the time for them to embrace being bold, bright and full of fun.
That's my philosophy anyway.
With regard to the same/same look of the pants - don't blame me - the girls picked the colours themselves.
That said - it makes it a much faster process when the same colour overlocker and top-stitching cotton can be used!
There is method to their madness after all.
I also want to tackle a few Insa skirts and Imke tops from this fabulous book, which is where the pants pattern is from.
But they might be a while away, so don't hold your breath waiting!
Go on over and visit some of the creative spaces on Kirsty's huge list of players.
There's sure to be something there for everyone!
