Bright Yellow Pants

Oh, little yellow sailor pants, you are the bane of my existance.

It was nearly impossible to get even a "good-enough button hole" on certain parts of these pants due to the thickness of the fabric and in the end I ended up having to cut out the front piece again since my original front piece was covered with crappy buttonholes (and blood - but that's a different story).  Luckily I had just enough fabric leftover to be able to cut out another front piece and front facing.  I suppose the sewing gods were looking down on me afterall.

Round two with the buttonholes didn't necessarily go much better, but this time I knew I needed to make it work, so I did.  They ain't perfect, but they'll do.  Plus, they're hiding behind these adorable buttons that I bought in some antique shop some time ago (aren't I full of details today?).  The best part about these buttons?  A little handwritten note on the back about how they were purchased in Munich.  I hope that the original owner knows that her buttons found a good home.

Apart from the buttonhole fiasco, the rest of the pants went together just fine and dandy.  In fact, I threw them on O about an hour after I finished them (which explains why there are still some stray threads hanging off of them...I command you to ignore them all!) and she didn't scream when I put them on her so we'll consider them a success.  A bright yellow, nautical success!
