My girl fits a Farbenmix pattern at just about the 122/128 cutting line. She's kind of on the slim side (she does not take after her mother). You will see that I do not have a 5/8-inch seam allowance, but much less. Please cut your seam allowance to fit your child. All the pieces are cut 2x with the grain. Only the waistband is cut on the fold.
And this is how the pieces lay out. See? This really, really is going to be a pair of trousers.
I've chosen a 6 oz. denim and a comparable weight camo twill, because something about the pockets and piecing is saying "adventure" to me. And, I thought, with these materials, we might also be able to image the boy version. Please look here and here for inspiration and ideas.
And transfer those markings! On these patterns, instead of notches, as you may be used to, these are the marks used to match pieces to one another.
Here, I'm playing with the trim details I'd like to incorporate. Any thoughts?
I think that's enough for today. If none of that made any sense to you, maybe Melissa Wondermommy will be more helpful.
See you tomorrow!
