Summer Sewing - Laney's Huck Finn Pants

Not to be outdone by her brother, Laney had to have summer shorts with a Dora theme too! She is in the middle of learning how to walk, but her main mode of transportation is crawling at top speed around the house. We have wooden floors and a cement floor in the laundry room, so shorts are not such a great idea. Her poor knees turn bright red and she gets discouraged.

Short pants are a terrific idea then. They are still summery, but they have enough fabric to cover her knees when she crawls. I used the pattern for Huck Finn pants in Weekend Sewing by Heather Ross. I know - Huck Finn pants are meant for boys - so let's just call them capris shall we?

They are perfect for sitting babies.

And mischief-causing, trouble making babies.

And crawling babies.

And even sweet sleeping babies.

Coming Up: I'm working on a patchwork sundress. Wish me luck!
