A while ago I made a pair of corduroy pants using the same pattern. I have been waiting patiently until it got warm enough to make a pair of capris. Little Monkey paired them up with a ruffled tee-shirt and a cardi her Babushka made for her. She looks so adorable and girly in these photos!
This little person might look girly, but take her to a playground, and she will instantly start running, climbing and jumping! What can I cay - Little Monkey by name, little monkey by nature!
The capris are made from gorgeous denim chambray I bought from House of Cloth. I could not think of better fabric for this project. The yoke and the cuffs are made from the same fabric as the rest of the capris, just sewn wrong side up.
My four year old is only size two around her waist and hips. These capris are size 2 width with size 4 length. This was the first time I remembered to make the top of the pants 'deeper' as well. Just like last time, I made the waistband adjustable.
I spent forever wondering how to decorate the yoke. Then I remembered that Tasha used two different coloured threads to topstitch her son's jeans and that I loved the effect. I picked one of the fancy stitches on my machine, pulled white and light grey threads through one needle, and got the effect I was after.
This is a great pattern for little girls who want to look like little ladies while behaving like little monkeys :)
