After the kid pants drafting I show you how to transform the basic kid pants pattern into the unisex beach pants. There are no front panels and back panels. The front and the back are in one pattern. So, you have to cut only two parts (for the right leg and for the left leg) and the waistband. That is all.
For safety sake. The front panel marked in red colour, the back panel marked in blue colour. The beach pants marked in green colour.
Lay out the front panel next to the back panel just like in the picture. At the top of the pants leave about 1,57″- 1,97″ between the two parts.
Hemlines are in a line.
Increase the back waistline at the crotchline by 1,18″
Decrease the inseam at the bottom of the pants by 0,79″ at the front and by 1,18″ at the back.
Measure the waistline from the begining of the front to the and of the back. The length needs to the waistband.

My girls grow up so fast and I have to keep on sewing for them. Just finished this floral romper today for my sweet teenage daughter. It’s comfortable and just perfect for summertime.
It has a tie shoulder to easily open and slip on and I decorated both end of it with colourful plastic beads.
I used the basic pants sewing pattern and the basic blouse sewing pattern to create this romper.
I started to sew all of my curtains long time ago.
I love the first part best. I don’t mark the line before I cut the curtain material just let the scissors move nice and slowly between the two threads.
Check this out.
This fabric has its own story. I got it a long time ago. My first plan was I would make something for myself. And than I just let it sit on the shelf.
A few days ago when the spring sunshine came through the window suddenly it occurred to me I have this fabric. I decided I make a lined jacket for my younger daughter in her style.
The jacket has fitted set-in sleeves and welt pockets on the sides.
Anyway, It was not the first time I made this kind of jacket. I had sewn one for her before. It was last year, around October. You can find the picture on the Pinterest.
