I've been wanting to make a pair od jersey trousers for a while now. Something that will have long legs but be soft and comfy for Baby Stash.
This is my second pair of trousers (first not posted yet!) using the Baby Overalls pattern from Jackie Clark Design. I cut a deep waist (about a centimetre below the arm holes) so that I could fold a turning into the waist band, and lengthened the legs by about an inch. Oh, and I didn't bother with a popper crotch, they're just pull on pull off, which I find works perfectly well with jersey.
I was going to put leg pockets on both sides and call them cargo pants but I decided one was enough, especially as it took me three goes to get the button hole right (yes, I know I've given up doing botton holes buth there's a secret there that I need to tell you about...) so they're more like yoga pants than anything else.
Mr G calls them Baby S's old man's trousers - they're not the most flattering item in his wardrobe and they do sit rather high on his waist (mostly due to the bulk of the cloth nappies he's in), but they do fit the soft and comfy bill to a T.
The jersey came from Tia Knight, by the way, and it's a single rib; much easier to sew than that akward stuff I made the onesie out of. I have learnt that to get a reasonable weight jersey (not the flimsy stuff that cheap t-shirts are made out of) you need to go for something that weighs at least 230g per square metre. This is a really lovely jersey; it drapes nicely and is a very reasonable price. I only got a metre of it to try but I shall definitely go back for more, and perhaps even make something for myself if I can get organised.
