In love with 'Hosh Pants'

I often hear bloggers say that once they've made up a pattern they go onto something new because making the same pattern repeatedly is boring. I definitely buck this trend; if a project turns out well and is a hit with kids, I often revisit it multiple times. The 'Hosh Pants' is definitely becoming one of those patterns!

Little Guy looked so cute in his cord Hoshes that I just had to make him some more. These are 12-18 month waist, with 2T length, in a super-soft plum-coloured stretch denim. And because the fabric is so plush, I couldn't resist running up a pair for the Little Lady in 4-5 years.

I added back pockets with coordinating coloured topstitching (stone for the boy and lilac for the girl) and contrasting waistband facings.

Since both pairs have extra length to allow for growth, I painstakingly stitched flat-felled inseams to allow for smarter turn-ups.. not easy when there is no outer seam on the leg!

  1. I love those pants and your fabric choices are perfect. I'm the same way, if I find a pattern I love I make it over and over.
