Banyan, Pockets

I have the honor to work with Shelly and Daniela at Figgy’s Patterns and their wonderful garment pattern designs for children and tweens – in this case one of their latest: the Banyan shirt, tunic, pants and shorts. As of this evening, my tutorial for custom-sizing the trousers is live on Figgy’s site.

  1. I’m loving the waistband on those pants! Looking forward to the tutorial :)

    The tutorial is up! I hope many readers enjoy it.

  3. Such a great tutorial! I learned a lot. Nels looks fab in those perfect pants.

    I’m glad to have been helpful! The pants immediately got stained by some orange twill from Gray’s General I washed… and it bled. Interesting as I haven’t had a fabric bleed in a long time! So I’m washing and air/sun-drying them until the stains lift. Let’s hope!
