Told you I loved this pattern!
This is TAKE TWO of the Ben & Mia Pants by Lily Bird Studio. The original pair with review can be seen here.
I'm absolutely tickled with this sweet little pair of pants! Everything blended perfectly to create a most pleasing sewing experience...you know the kind where you giggle in anticipation as you see your creation coming together? Yea...that's good!
It all started with this fabric.
I recently acquired a rather large amount of vintage fabrics and this was one of the delightful prints mixed in. It's a heavy weight cotton/poly blend and I instantly new it must become a pair of Ben & Mia pants.
I knew I wanted yellow piping, and was thinking big yellow buttons for the embellishment belt loops, but then I found these swirly blue ones in my vintage button box...
They were ok, but then....then I found the buttons that were created for this specific project!
Look at that! The reds were a perfect match and that little white stitching!!! Seriously??? It was a giddy moment!
There is something so familiar about this fabric, I'm thinking maybe I had my own pair of pants like this back in the day! ;)
The fun features of the piping, the chunky button belt loops and the double stitched seams, <SIGH!> I just can't get enough of!
I'm lovin' these little pants so much the babe may not get to wear them. We may just have to hang them on the wall in her room to admire! ;)
It sure is great to have one of those "ideal" sewing experiences every once in a while.
The fabric, the pattern, the buttons....I'm tellin' ya, it was a match made in Heaven!
Here's wishing you some of the same!
