KCW – Project #2

Project #2 is a pair of Ben and Mia pants (the pattern is from Lily Bird Studio on Etsy).  I used piping around the pockets, some cute squirrel fabric for the waistband facing and pocket linings, made them capri length, and added elastic at the bottom of the legs.  I really wasn’t sure about the fabric – it’s a cotton twill with a bit of stretch to it (from Fabricland, which has a pretty meh selection) – it’s just a little bit too shiny for my liking.  It is really difficult to find basic, solid-coloured fabric that is suitable for pants.  Anyhow, I decided to go for it, and they actually came out pretty well.  I think the fabric will lose some of it’s shininess with wear.  At least I’m not nervous about them getting worn and stained.
