Wintertime means pants are the go-to bottom half for the kids outfits. Around here it's too cold for anything less! How about some cute pants patterns that will keep those lower halves cozy and make dressing for winter more fun? Scope out these fabulous pants designs from one of my favorite pattern makers (and a wonderful supporter of Sew Can Do), Terra's Treasures.
Check out the updated Monkey Pants Pattern that comes with animal applique backsides to make them even more adorable. Seriously how cute are these monkey & skunky bums?!?
And this charming little fox:
These comfy pants can be done in knits, sweatshirt fabric or fleece, so lots of cuddly options for many different looks. My absolute favorite is this little penguin version - look how sweet & cute:
All of these cute animal appliques are included in the Monkey Pants Pattern and it also looks super cute without appliques, just by using different solid & print combos. My favorite feature is that it covers sizes 0-3mos through 5T, which means I can still make some for my little miss who's in the 4-5T range:)
And Terra has styles that are great for bigger kids too. The Kensington Pant Pattern has a great boutique look, but is still easy enough for beginners. A curved front, piping detail and elastic back make it ideal for all body types. It even has a shorts option for warmer months ahead, so it's a great year round design:
And for a pants pattern that works for both girls AND boys, check out Terra's Metropolitan Pant Pattern. This pattern works for all the kids from 6 months to a big kid 10. Welt pockets, elasticized back waist and clean lines make these great daily wear pants for every season.
I've really loved using Terra's Treasures patterns to make clothing for my own kids. The PDF patterns are really versatile & very easy to follow. The designs have that real boutique style mixed with practical "real kid fit" features. I'm also a big fan of sewing knits without a serger and Terra provides lots of tips & tricks for doing just that (which is a rare find in patterns).
You can also score some savings (up to 25% off!) by using the discount codes found in the shop's banner or by becoming a fan of Terra's Treasures on Facebook. Plus, every Friday Terra has a sale on a different popular pattern, so there are lots of ways to save and get some great patterns. Now I'm off to grab that Monkey Pants Pattern for myself!
