Soft lounge pants for little girls

matchy girls

I found this Debbie Mumm fleece remnant at my local fabric store and turned it into warm pants for my little girls using some existing pants as patterns:

clothes as patterns

I cut Emma’s out on the fold so that I had one less seam to sew (the outer leg seam) and to keep more of the pattern intact (I wasn’t trying to match the pattern along seam lines).

I have a few more remnants I bought on the same shopping trip that I plan to do the same thing with. I’ll make some for Johnny, too, out of less girly fabric. =)

  1. That picture of Lily and Emma is absolutely adorable! Thank you for adding an extra big smile to my day! I love the print on the fleece, too–incredibly cute on your little girls!

  2. I’ve made pants like this before. I don’t know how to read a pattern, so I just use the pants as a guide to make new ones. I’ll have to try out fleece!

    Your girls look soooo happy! And who wouldn’t be – cute AND comfy is an unbeatable combination.

    Still love these. Makes me wish I had used the fleece I bought to make these for my girls!! Well, the winter isn’t over yet, is it? (I wish it was :)
