KCWC Day 4: Drop Crotch Pants and Basket Weave T-shirt

Day four of KCWC and I've miraculously finished two more items.  That said, I think I add four things to my "Want to Make" list every time I check in to the Elsie Marley Flickr group.  Which makes me feel like I'm not getting as much done as I wanted but in reality, I'm getting way more done than I ever thought I would.

Which brings me to today's project.  The "drop crotch" pant is taking over this year's KCWC and after seeing them, I decided the big boy HAD to have a pair.  I'd seen Cirque Du Bebe's Sarousel version last year but being in the baby realm, safely stored the idea away in my brain, just in case someone else decided to go ahead and have another baby.  Not me.  Because three boys is all I can handle.

While I was making up day three's Greenpoint Cardigan, I was thinking how lovely it would have looked with a nice pair of red pants.  Put those two ideas together and the anti was upped.  This became easier said than done after the middle guy took a pair of scissors to the pattern I had drafted (with real pockets) while I put the little one down for his nap.

Then came the issue of me changing the design by adding the black trim.  You see, this then meant that I couldn't follow Sophie's fabulous tutorial when it came to attaching the drawstring.  You should have seen how big these were on the big guy's waist before I fixed them.  Man is this kid skinny.

A little bit of time off between naps and dinner, bed, and bath helped clear my head and I was able to get it all together.  Which meant I had some free time to work on a coordinating shirt.  I love how the basket weave gives the shirt a bit of texture while not changing its overall neutrality.

I'm pretty happy with how things are turning out.  How are things going on your end?
