brrr..it's cold outside!

It's getting colder in the Pacific North West! So I decided to whip up a pair of fleecy warm pants!

I really love this pattern!  The pants fit nice and look good on me.  BUT, I'm not a big fan of the waist.  First, there is no elastic (I've always added one in) and second I don't have a belly I want to show off (at this time!)

The fabric has been in my stash forever!  I only have a few yards of it and wanted to make sure i had enough to make my three girls pants too...so I made the hips a bit smaller than usual.  It's fine, they still fit (a bit snug) but the fabric is stretch and warm and perfect for lounging around the house!

I opted for a "regular" waist band, as you can see from the picture below:


Now to hem the bottoms and I'll be nice and warm while I make the girlies their pants tonight!

I live in the lovely PNW too and it is definitely getting cold around these parts! The thick socks and blankets are out! Fleece pants sound like a great idea!

Oh, do those look like they'd get good use in my neck of the woods. I love climbing into fabric like that and just lounging around after work. The pattern is too cute, too!

I was once a central Canadian girl, and I tell you I WISH this kind of fabric was around when I lived there!
Thanks for stopping by!

@LauraThanks! I now wish I had bought more...but it looks to be just enough to make my 3 girls pants and maybe tops for the younger two!
