Oliver + S Sailboat Pants, how I love thee. So sweet, simple, and fast to sew! I have had this pattern for years and finally got my rear in gear and made these awesome pants. I sewed these for my boy in size 18-24 months, which I felt was just a touch roomy and was exactly what I expected as he’s a tall 15 month old. For the fabric I used Robert Kaufman Railroad stripe in Indigo. I’m in love with the Railroad fabrics right now and thought the stripes would work perfectly with these pants.
For the lining I went nautical and used Playing Koi by Birch. Railroad meets nautical, I think it works 🙂
For the side panels I had fun with the stripes and went horizontal. I really love the look and am so glad I went for it! I’m planning to do a matching Seashore dress for my daughter in these fabrics and there will be all kinds of playing with the stripe direction as well!
Action shot! Love the buttons on his little pudgy belly.
I love these pants! If you haven’t tried this pattern from Oliver + S I’d highly recommend it. I hope the rest of KCW goes as quickly as today’s sewing did, and since the rest of my projects are also Oliver + S I’m anticipating smooth sailing!
