KCWC - Fin

A while back I bought some Heather Ross Munki Munki carnival fabric. Well, actually it's pieces from a pair of pajamas. I bought a back panel of a pajama top and a leg panel of pajama bottoms. I love all things Heather Ross so I had to have it. 

I used the Easy Fit Pants pattern and just added a pocket on the side. I used a raglan sleeve top from Ottobre (4/2010). It's my first try with the top and I have to make the neck a little smaller on the next go around. I usually like making lap tee's but the raglan sleeve tee was so fast and easy to make. I'm not sure how most of you attach the neckline to a raglan tee but I liked the method Ottobre used. You stitch three shoulder seams first, then attach the neckline, followed by the final shoulder seam. I wasn't paying attention to the instructions and I stitched all four shoulder seams so there was a little seam ripping going on. It still was a quick top to make. 

p.s. Aren't photographs just wonderful? I am seeing that the left leg (with the pocket, pictured in the far right photo) is longer than the right leg. Hmmm. I will have to investigate and get back to you on this matter.

Very cute! Are you sure that one leg is longer? I have noticed that sometimes on a hanger they can look like that, and that shows up in pictures, while in reality they are actually the same length. Anyway, great trousers and top!

I thought I was a big HR fan, but I totally missed this fabric. Did you get in on the studio sale? I'm dying to see what shows up!

I will definitely try the raglan sewing tip. I hate attaching neckline ribbing. A lot.

I LOVE THIS OUTFIT!!! I'm a big fan of circus. I saw those pjs listed and it made me nervous. I love this re-purpose.

I just found you this week and am inspired to sew for my little boy! Starting on some pants like these. Love all your fabric combos. Not too precious and very cool.
Keep posting boy stuff! :)
