Rinse and Repeat – S5271 Revisited in Pint Size Version

2012 September 30
by elizabeth_admin

They’re done!  Jack now has matching pants with his grandpa.  I used S5271 again, my pattern review for the adult sized version is here.  This time around I made one change.  I used the patch pockets placed over the side seams as the pattern called for.  I knew Jack would like that detail.  The children’s sizes are a little on the large side.  I had to give Jack a four inch hem (2 inches double folded) and it’s still a teensy bit on the long side.  I guesstimated on his elasticized waist size as he was asleep when I reached this part of construction, so now I need to tighten that up.  Oh the joys of unpicking flannel.  Can’t wait.  And of course there was one major user error when constructing these pants — I made two right legs.  Instead of unpicking one of the legs (consider the topstitching I would have to unpick –  ugh!), I cut up a third leg and made sure it was a lefty.  This flannel had no discernible wrong or right side, so it was understandable if annoying that I made two right legs.

And now for some pictures….




Today, because I couldn’t wait until Monday, I gave my dad his presents today.  I wanted him to be able to lounge around today in his new lounge wear.  🙂

The fit was spot on!


I am impatiently waiting for my new fabrics to arrive so I can attempt this Asos knockoff.


I went to Yardage Town a few days ago to see if I could source some double knit and faux leather, but their selections were not of the quality with which I wanted to work.  The double knit was 100% poly and the faux leather was a little on the skanky side.  So an internet order is winging its way to me soon.  Now I just have to find a pattern that will work.

Happy sewing everyone!
