Skip and Play Pants and Capris Pattern from The Cottage Mama: Now Available!

I am pleased to announce the third pattern from The Cottage Mama Summer Collection, the Skip and Play Pants and Capris (Size 6 month – size 10)!
These are the first pair of pants and capris offered from The Cottage Mama. You can layer these under dresses and jumpers or pair them with a little t-shirt and cardigan. However, your little lady decides to wear them, they will surely get noticed!
Skip and Play Pants and Capris
DESCRIPTION: The Skip and Play Pants and Capris are the perfect wardrobe essential for your darling little one. The pants and capris feature a flat front waistband with elastic in the back, several contrasting cuff options and a sweet ruffle in the waistband for added whimsy and detail. View A, the double wrap cuff variation, features a bottom cuff with a wrap around top cuff that can be trimmed out with a button on each side. View B is a ruffle cuff variation that mimics view A; however an adorable ruffle replaces the wrap around cuff. And View C, the basic variation, eliminates the ruffle in the waistband and is perfect for an older girl who might prefer a more mature style pant or capri. No matter what variation you choose this pattern will take your child through all seasons.

This is great pattern for confident beginner sewers and offers many ways to get creative with your design. Consider mixing and matching these pants and capris with many other designs from The Cottage Mama collection of sewing patterns!

There are two different cuff options with these pants and capris. View A is shown in the picture above.

The top waistband of the pants and capris has a sweet little ruffle; however, View C can be made without the ruffle for a slightly older girl or for those that don’t care much for the ruffle look.

These are View B from the Skip and Play Pants and Capris pictured with the Miss Matilda Dress and Top pattern. This outfit was created by Melissa Myers and features a side bow embellishment in addition to the buttons on the capris.
Here is another variation of View A in the capri length paired with the Miss Matilda Dress and Top (Size 6 month – 10 years) made by Katie Romagosa from Leave You In Stitches.
FIT: The fit is probably my favorite part of these pants. They are a flat front pant and capri with elastic in the back waistband. These pants are a more slim fit through the hip. The goal was too create a more fitted pant which is  a little bit harder in the sewing pattern market today. All of the testers really loved the look. It is important to mention that when selecting the size for your little lady, you will need to pay careful attention to her waist measurement. Select the size based on waist and adjust for length. Doing so will ensure a perfectly fitting pant or capri!
