Make them as vivid or monotone as you want; for boys AND girls from toddler 12/18M all the way up to 15/16Y! If you are tired of clicking the refresh button on your pants making (or buying!) game, break free and start making some Pudding Pants!

The Pudding Pants are going to be your kids new favorite pants. An easy sewing project with some strikingly cool looks, that couldn't be comfier! Get ready to fall in love with all the different looks you can make: the color-blocked version has built-in pockets; the solid version is just quick and simple. Love the pockets but don't want to do two different fabrics? You can achieve a "non color-blocked" look by sewing the contrast version with the same fabrics! There are also three different hem options: regular hem, contrast ankle cuff, or rolled cuff plus optional pin-tucking (I am a huge fan of making them with the pin-tucks!) Time to pull out your best knits from your stash and start making some Pudding Pants!

Variations include:

・leg finishes include: contrast cuff, standard hem, or rolled cuff hem.

・optional Center Front pin-tucking

・solid color or color-blocked

・pockets (for color-blocked option only

Fabric recommendations:

  • MAIN FABRICS: Light to medium weight knit fabric with at least 40% stretch recovery: cotton or cotton blend jersey, knit interlock, sweater knit (see notes above). 

  • CONTRAST FABRICS: Ribbing, jersey with at least 75% stretch recovery. If you are using a knit fabric with less stretch recovery, add about 1/2"-3/4" (1-2cm) to the pattern piece. Do not use fabric with less than 30% stretch recovery.

SOME TECHNIQUES MAY INCLUDE (but are not exclusive to): sewing with knit fabric (I've made a guide for you if it's your first time sewing with knits), sewing color-blocked pieces, sewing pockets, pin-tucking, sewing cuffs, constructing an adjustable, elasticized waistband, and making ties.
