I cannot declare the season of cool pants open and not make more cool pants.
The cool factor of Hosh pants by Emmyloubeedoo is right up there. Agree?
I really love these pants, but was hesitant to make a pair for Little Monkey as I was worried they might look ridiculous on my skinny model. However after I saw the Hosh pants my blogging friend Carolina made for her girl I decided I had to give it a go.
So, While she was sleeping, I made a pair of Hosh pants for my Little Monkey.
She was not in the mood for photos!
No, she is not turning around so that I could photograph the back of the pants. She is turning away from the camera. What can I say? Being a daughter of a sewing blogger must be a tough gig.
Back to the pants though. I bought this brightly coloured stretch cotton sateen from my local Spotlight. Hosh pants provide a great opportunity to showcase cool prints as there are no side seams.
I feel I got a little out of my comfort zone making such bright pants, but I enjoyed the feeling! The pattern consists of only for pieces and it doesn't take long to put a pair of cool pants together at all! It helps when a pattern is accompanied by clear instructions.
Oh well, Little Monkey did not enjoy being photographed in her new cool pants, but she did enjoy wearing them!
My local Spotlight has more fun prints in their cotton sateen range, so I might just have to make a few more pairs of cool Hosh pants for Little Monkey.
