Treasure Pocket Pants

treasure pocket pants

Phew!  I did it.  I finished the Treasure Pocket Pants just in time.  I really wasn't sure if I was going to make it this time.

I'd run into the problem of not having enough fabric to finish cutting the pattern early in the month.  I had an image in my head of how I wanted the pants to look and so I had to reorder fabric and wait for it to come.

Once I'd received the denim dyed Linen, I was set to go . . . until I realized I needed to print off the pattern correction.


Once I'd taken care of that, I ran into a time crunch with preparing the house for my parent's arrival, and just when I thought I was ready for all of that . . .

the house fell under the wrath of a stomach bug.

Thanks to my parents, I was able to finish them up this afternoon and while they are not the greatest pictures, at least I have a few action shots to share.


The side panels,waist and hem bands were done in Robert Kaufman's, Metro Living Dots in Orange.  The closer I look at these photos, the more I think the buttons have to go, but I love, love, love the pockets.


I ended up leaving the the hem facing as a cuff, but I imagine as the weather improves and the boys are wearing sandals more often, I'll need to take these up.


For now, I'm just happy they are finished.  Thank you so, so much for following along with me ladies.  There is NO WAY, I'd have finished this months pattern if not for this group.

Pop on over tomorrow for the May pattern announcement.  I hope you'll be as excited as I am when you see what it is.

  1. I really like the cuffs! Such a great idea - I may have to do a pair like this for my son. I've been thinking about lengthening these for a while, but a wide cuff hadn't occurred to me.

  7. I totally agree about wanting to get things done to keep up with the group. There's no way I'd be doing all these patterns without it, so thank you for hosting Stacey! Can't wait to see what you have chosen for May! (Oh, and I agree with you on the buttons here - take 'em off)

  8. Great pants. Love the combination - denim is great with orange or red!
    Didn't get to finish mine since we were away on holiday all April... will still try the pattern though, these pants are just awesome!
    Excited to see the next pattern and join you again now in May.

  9. Chuiff, I was not able to participate this month. Or I did the pants but didn't had the chance to take pictures... well, my kid gain a new pair of pants and that is good enough! I am going to take a look at what the other girls did! By the way, your pants look great ;)

  10. I'm just drooling over that denim-dyed linen! It's just scrumptious! I want some!! Well worth the extra wait. The pants turned out great. I know what you mean about the size - Joe is tripping over his even with the cuffs turned up! I may at least tack down the cuffs for now so that they don't unfold as Joe plays. Well done.

  11. I'm so bummed that I've had to drop out only after two months... my machine has been at the shop and I haven't picked it up since the guy there told me it wasn't worth fixing! :( I can't wait to make these pants! Time for an upgrade for me but have to wait until I get a new machine. Great pants! Very cute!
