Toffy pants in denim

I thought it would be a good idea to make DD, DS and my jeans altogether. I finished the boy's pair an age ago, so it was about time to finish the girl's before I finished mine.

The pattern is Ottobre's Toffy pants (#15 from 4/2009) but with the pockets from #12. The Tulip pants (#12) are the girly version of the Toffy pants, but with the gathered wide legs, it was probably too baggy for my skinny minny. I liked the gathering on the front pockets and the pintucks on the back pockets though. The binding looked good too.
I find it hard to believe that I traced a size 116 for the girl. Of course, she is still 98 in the width (and I had to take it in more at the waist since there is no elastic).

Jalisa is thrilled with them. I am glad to get them finished and into her wardrobe where they are needed to the chilly weather we are having.


  1. They look so fab and Little Missy looks so pleased with them! Well done!

  2. They look great Marie - well done:)

  3. They look great! Lucky girl :)

  4. They are so cute - the pockets with the binding are really nice. I don't remember this pattern, but I must have it...


Thanks - I love receiving comments.
