When you get woken up at 5:30 am by small people, you may as well use the morning productively. And so it was that I was doing my daily crafting at 6am while the kids ate breakfast.
Since I used this men's shirt yesterday to make a girl's dress, I thought I'd do an experiment to see if I could make pants from the leftover shirt sleeves. Then it would basically be a zero waste project.
Here's the result. Skinny leg trousers. As usual, the model would not stay still. The length of my husband's shirt sleeves seems perfect for Mr 3 year old though. What do you think? Not sure how practical the fabric will be for the little man though, given it doesn't really stretch. Only time will tell.
I cut the crotch shape into the top section of the sleeve, with a deeper cut on one side for the bottom. I did this for both sleeves and then sewed them together, one inside the other.
Here they are sewed together and ready for an elastic casing to be added.
