These are the Aviator pants, a pattern made by my friend Suzanne from Winter Wear Designs. They are a cute knit pant with tons of options!
I made A a size 5 in these pants hoping they will fit him through the winter. The pattern comes in sizes 18 months through 14. The fit is great, with a little room to grow!
The pattern calls for a heavy knit fabric, I made these with some sweatshirt fleece from JoAnn's. I was pleasantly surprised how nice their sweatshirt fleece is! They have some weird wrinkles on one leg that I didn't notice until I finished sewing. No amount of ironing would get them out, I am hoping they come out in the wash.
I love the triangle color blocking on the bottom! I did the slash pocket option at the hips and used the same fabric I used in the color blocking for the pocket. The pants also have optional cargo pockets and welt pockets for the back, but I skipped those.
The pants have no zippers or buttons, so they are great for A to wear to preschool. They have a yoga waistband...yoga waistband + sweatshirt fleece = super comfy pants! Even my pants hating 3 year old loves these! They have soft ribbed cuffs at the ankles too.
These were a super quick sew, I had them printed, cut and sewn all in under an hour this morning!
These pants would be great for girls too, I want to make a girly pair this winter for Em. And they have an option for making shorts too!
