Break it down! Stop, Hammer time!
Those of you 80’s babies (yes I’ll admit it) know exactly what I mean when I say Hammer pants. Well that was the first thing my husband said when he saw what the baby was wearing. I had to correct him, even though a sliver of me agrees.
“No, these are Harem pants. It’s what all the cool kids are wearing these days.” (Insert his eyeroll here…)
All kidding aside these are some pretty awesome pants. They’re loose enough for him to wiggle around (and I’ve heard to fit nicely over cloth diapers) yet have a great wide ribbed waist to stay up on my little peanut.
These are the Cuff Waist Harem Pants from Brindille & Twig (www.brindilletwig.com). Easy to follow directions and a super fast sew! The pattern does call for knit but since they are a baggy fit I took a chance on corduroy and LOVE the result!
Oh, and speaking of this dreamy fabric. It’s a fine wale corduroy made by Verhees. The description I was given was “super baby-butt soft” and man she wasn’t kidding!
Verhees is European brand and I’ll admit I have fallen hard for Euro fabrics in my search for awesome boy prints. I am SO excited to have found Mabel Madison. A fabric store dedicated to bringing fabulous boy options.
