HAVE MERCY! Bee's Britches are the cutest thing I have ever seen!
I'm especially proud of these because I created the pattern myself. Bee has a pair of the sweetest little baggies that I put her in as soon as they come out of the dryer every time. I just love them, but since they came with a pretty hefty price tag, they are the only pair that I am willing to buy. When this Darcy fabric by Anna Griffin arrived in the mail a few days ago, I knew instantly what my first project would be.
I pulled Bee's baggies out (from the dirty laundry basket, of course) and began work on creating the pattern. It took me 3 prototype trials to get the proportion of the leg correct, but eventually I had a pair of scratchy, remnant-bin, blue seersucker baggies. As soon as the prototype was finished, I started cutting on the Darcy fabric. It took me two evenings to get them put together (and those pockets gave me a run for my money), but the result is PRECIOUS!
And, I've already cut out the next pair...
