One piece pants in action

Onepiecepants pattern Toddler Edition
This is a multi-sized (12mos, 2,3,4T) one piece pants pattern for toddlers (those wearing diapers or pull-ups). All four sizes are included on the one pattern sheet. It takes a yard of fabric per pair of size 3T and 4T pants, 3/4yd for sizes 12mos and 2T, plus 18” of 3/4inch wide sport elastic.

I love to sew, and love to figure out ways to make sewing more interesting and results-oriented. How many of you have had a pants emergency with your kids? My goal is to provide you with a pattern that results in pants a child will enjoy wearing. If this means animal pants, sports logo pants, strawberry pants, one-use Halloween costume pants, flannel pajama pants – the results are only limited by your imagination and the extent of your stash at 1am. This pattern came from years of pants emergencies and kids who just didn’t fit into standard pants or wanted something special (those animal pants).

I have included more than enough instructions to make this a good first sewing lesson.
Since fabric stores are full of thousands of yards of quilt fabrics in about a jillion prints, why not use those prints to make your kids bottom halves match their interests? Fewer seams make more comfortable wearing and faster results. You can make these up in any fabric that a child would want to get into.
I’ve made and sold several patterns (Sewbaby Wonder Coat, for reviews see www.patternreview.com); this is my first foray into the all digital pattern world.

The pattern is available for sale on Craftsy (search on toddler onepiece pant pattern) and is in PDF format (meaning you print it out and tape it together, instructions to do so in email sent with pattern) and will be emailed to you within 24 hours of receiving payment. If you don't hear from me within 24 hours, something has gone awry and please email me as such.
