I have been feeling really tired in the past few weeks and though I have acquired many new patterns recently, I haven't got the energy to print them, glue them, cut them so I can finally cut the fabric. I really love to sew, but those preliminaries are just way too boring! So, when I am really in the mood to sew but not at all in the mood to cut patterns, I simply use a pattern that has already been tested. And so I made my third version of Oliver and S' After School Pants! So far this is my favorite pattern for girl pants. 

In my previous versions I used (the same) denim, but this time I wanted to make them more girly, so I used a floral quilting fabric purchased at Walmart (did not know they carry fabric, but they do and they do have some lovely prints!).

I already knew the instructions were impeccable, so making these pants was a real pleasure. 

I think they fit perfectly on Teresa, but she did complaint about the length of the legs. I don't think they are that big, so I think I am keeping their length and just fold them a bit for now.

Cute right?

So cute! She is quite the model! Love the little ruffle on the pockets, great detail. I actually don't mind the assembling the pattern and cutting, I find it very relaxing, but I'm weird!

The pants are lovely and the fabric print is adorable. Teresa is such a great model ;-)
I feel the same about printing, cutting and everything that takes before start sewing!
