Last week I sewed up a pair of Urbanite Pants by Rabbit Rabbit from the latest issue of One Thimble (affiliate link). I didn’t share them with you all because I was not able to get a single nice modeled shot. My 14 month old is about the world’s worst model right now; he doesn’t walk, won’t stand still, and throws a tantrum if I put him somewhere he doesn’t want to be!
But, this morning I pulled out my camera, took two flat shots, and thought I would share anyways.
These pants feature hip pockets, back pockets, and a contrast yoke. They have an elastic waistband which makes them comfortable to wear and easy to fit. With these features, they would look great done in light weight denim as an alternative to traditional jeans!
I made my pair from a light weight stretch woven. The contrast print is quilting cotton and the hip pockets are done with a stable interlock, since I didn’t have any other woven fabric that matched.
I love the fit of these pants. They fit over my little guy’s cloth diapered bum and stay up where they are supposed too. While a little on the big side now, they’ll fit him well into fall.
Of course, the only decent picture I got was one that didn’t have the pants in it, but to redeem your confidence in my (developing) photography skills, I thought I would share anyway. Plus, he is cute, don’t you think?!
