KCWC #2



Hello.  Please allow me to introduce you to the easiest pants to make on the face of the planet - the Oliver and S Nature Walk Pants.  They consist of just three pattern pieces, they can be sewn together in no time flat, and yet they're as cute as can be.


Needless to say, I heart them and amazingly so does O, who often refuses to wear many of the things that I make her.  In this case though she actually picked them out of the hamper and asked to wear them again (and, of course, I said yes!  Dirty pants never hurt anybody, right?)


Pattern: Oliver and S Nature Walk Pants
Size: 3T - although I sewed the entire pants with a 1/2 inch seam allowance rather than the called for 1/4 inch because I was too lazy to walk upstairs and check the pattern.  Fortunately they still fit and I kind of like the slimmer fit that I got with the larger seam allowance.
Fabric: Cotton jersey

And an extra special thanks to Elsie Marley for hosting KCWC once again.  I'm ridiculously behind on reading blogs but once I get caught up (say around 2014) I can't wait to see what everyone has made.

  3. They do look so comfy but a nice shape too. I didn't notice the detail at the back before. Might have to give these a try.

  4. I love the slim fit. And Clem wore visibly dirty retrieved-from-the-floor pants all day yesterday, nothing wrong with that.

  5. Cool detail on the tush. It's good to know I'm not the only one who pulls clothes out of the hamper to wear again... *phew!*

  9. Love the pants. Wish I could pick up the pattern for my girls because they would wear them all the time.

  10. So cute and cozy. I really need to stop being cheap and just buy some Oliver and S patterns already!

  11. I love this pattern too! They look a little "yoga-pants-y" on a boy, I find (although I have considered them for PJ bottoms), so I am looking forward to sewing up lots of girl versions in the future! I am also intrigued by the Nature Walk top, but I've never actually sewed it up. Hmmm.

  12. These are so cute! I bought this pattern well over a year ago and have been too scared to try the knit pants (I'm not sure me and knits are on a close-knit basis - har! har!). Love the pattern review. I'm pretty sure I can handle three pieces.

    1. This was actually one of my very first knit projects (if not very first ...) and got me excited about sewing with knits. O+s patterns really hold your hand through the process. Try it!

  13. I haven't made this one yet! (buried in my stash since it was released)
    And it looks so comfy! (and quick - Can't beat 3 pieces, right!?)
