Winter 2014 Kids Clothes Week: Day 3

Next up is a pair of brighter blue corduroy pants.  I didn't have a big enough piece of fabric to do the fronts of the pants in one piece, so I made them with a "knee patch".  I also decided to do "hidden" back pockets, which I've never done before, so I took more pictures today!  The pockets didn't turn out as nice as I hoped, but not horrible, either.

Turn pocket lining to back sde

Inside of pocket with corduroy to go behind pocket opening

I sewed around the edge to secure the lining on the sides and bottoms (top comes later)

laying the pocket pieces on

Fold back pants and sew around sides and bottom of pocket

Top stitch the top of pocket opening through all the layers of both pockets.

The top of the pocket gets caught under the waistband when you turn it down.

yay!  a pocket

"Knee patches"

Yes, it's 7° F and he's wearing no shirt!

They are a little too long (Extend their use!)

Very nice! The hidden pockets are not fun to do but look so nice when done.
