Pixie Pants

September 26, 2012


I'm going to have a go at making some lovely warm, wool, botanical themed pants for my little girl.

The picture I have in mind is of old fashioned knickerbockers or maybe pantaloons?  The type men would wear while dueling with swords.  Bunchy and roomy with a three-quarter leg and worn over tights.  Cute :)

I have a little bit of pink blanket wool leftover from a Dandelion Coat which will be great to make the basic trouser with.  Of course then they will need some hand embroidery. Wildflowers will be sweet, including a dandelion of course!  

Hmmm pleats on a waistband or simple elastic?  Will need to accommodate a cloth nappy underneath too.

I might have a little play with some ideas in the studio tomorrow...
