Finally! A pair of cords

It's taken me a while but I've finally made some corduroy pants with the gorgeous fabric that Sherrin so generously sent me aaaaaages ago. I probably should have ironed them again before I took the camera out.


I overlocked all the seams before sewing them too, so there shouldn't be any fraying..... and I actually remembered to add the star embellishment before sewing the legs together this time.

I did somehow manage to overlock two wrong legs together at one stage and had to go back and unpick everything.

They'll be facing the fitment test on Moo Moo and Nico tonight. They are around the same size except that I just shortened the legs for Nico (which means that they're just not as flared at the bottom). Here's hoping that they fit!

I love the colour of the cords. I wish I could get the little guy to wear anything other than denim shorts.

I love your corduroy pants, especially with the star embellishment. I laughed when I read the bit about when to sew the star on. A little while ago, I forgot to put the patch pockets on pants and that was rather tricky to do after sewing the whole show up.

Great stitching detail on the stars. Love it!
