One more tutorial to bring home: the Pleated Pocket Capris.
Hello, Me Sew Crazy readers! I am so excited to be here sharing a tutorial with you. My name is Heidi, and I am a Canadian stay-at-home mom who blogs at Elegance & Elephants, a place where I share my handmade endeavours. While I dabble in many homemade projects from cooking to crafting, my greatest passion lies in sewing garments and toys for my children Anja (1 1/2 years) & Tobias (4 years).
Anja is at the stage where she is still pretty new at walking and to help protect her little knees from scrapes, I decided to come up with some little capri pants. I didn't give specific sizes, but if you need to know exactly what I did in order to made your own, just let me know!
Here's what I came up with:
**each pocket pleat is half an inch wide, so keep that in mind as you cut your front piece.**
**I like to cut the waistband out after stitching the front to back, trying it on, and making any adjustments, just to make sure it will fit well.**
Thank you so much for having me here today, Jessica & Me Sew Crazy readers!!
I would love it if you stopped by
to say hello!
