In case you haven't noticed I fell in love with the free 2T Small Fry Skinny Jeans Pattern when Laura did a sew-along on her blog Craftstorming. I made these and these. I have been "patiently" waiting for her to release the full pattern since then. Well... not only has the pattern just been released but I got to test it :)
I have tested quite a few patterns in the past year or two, but I think this was the one I wanted to test the most. I was NOT disappointed! Not only is the pattern awesome (I think, we knew it would be) but Laura was so open to feedback and so easily approachable during the process.
This pattern is beautifully drafted, the instructions are clear and easy to follow. There are lots of options: finishing, pockets, waistband, length and they have adjustable elastic... The testing group all came up with different fabric choices and "looks" for their jeans but one thing was consistent, they all fit beautifully and looked professionally made. These jeans look like store bought jeans! I even learned a new technique as I sewed them.
We had a heat wave temps (over 40deg C) AND I couldn't find the shoes... anywhere?! We took some indoor photos. The next day was a little better, temperature wise, so we ventured to the park for some outdoor shots... but the air was thick with smoke from a nearby bushfire... So these are the photos we managed to get.
Side note: I found Eloise's shoes a few days later in Seth's preschool bag?!

So, go and check them out! You can buy them here. And keep an eye out for many, many more of these jeans popping up all over blogland.
