Hey y’all – today I’m excited to have Veronica showing off her Clean Slate Shorts for our Blank Slate Patterns Sewing Team Friday. Enjoy!
Hi, there! This is Veronica from sewVery, and if you are already familiar with my blog, then you know I love to sew fun, stylish clothes for my daughter, Ella. Well, here’s the thing. She just started kindergarten last week, and Ella’s school requires her to wear boring standard school attire! Ack! Now she’ll only have weekends to wear the bright, printed fabrics that I typically use to make her sundresses, skirts, or tops.
What’s a sewing-loving mom to do then? You guessed it! I’ll just have to make most of her standard school attire myself and add a few interesting details that will make her solid colored clothing stand out in the crowd.
The first thing Ella needed in her school wardrobe were some basic khaki and black shorts, and the Blank Slate Clean Slate Pants Pattern fit the bill perfectly!
The Clean Slate Pants Pattern is incredibly versatile. The pattern includes lengths to make pants, capris, or shorts, and it’s a unisex design that fits both boys and girls equally well. The Clean Slate Pants Pattern fits sizes 18 months to 8 years and comes equipped with multiple optional features like
- zip fly
- welt pockets
- front rounded pockets
- and either a full elastic waistband or back elastic waist
