New Sandbox Pants

He grows and grows....and more get made. This first pair is for Atlas, size 4. We call these the book pants.

Made with Anna Maria Horner's Volumes(I think) from the Drawing Room line and Oliver & S Sandbox pants.  I love love love these pants and almost have the directions memorized!

 Twill tape for the drawstrings shaves at least 10-15 minutes off of the total time to make these.....
my kinda thing!
 I didn't worry much about fussy cutting the back pockets like I did the front.
 These are a pair made from green and white ticking with Echino for the pockets and waistband.  I love the way these look together.  I wanted to find a semi-girly way to do these pants.
 More twill tape!

 Another pair of book pants

 I cut all the back pockets for the book pants with the grain going the "wrong" way - just to see....
I like how it's more noticeable in person, especially as this fabric has a little sheen to it.
The last two pairs are being donated to Atlas' school.  I never finished them in time for the auction in we will have a mini auction just for the pants.


  1. Those book pants are AWESOME! (And I love your little tag! I want my own little tag!)

  2. WOW! super cute!! love the use of Volumes!

  3. Love those pants! The striped ones are awesome! Love the book ones!

  4. Oh no you didn't. Remember I had to copy your last pair? Now I've got to get this fabric to make an exact match. Fruitcake!!!!

  5. Love these! I really must get a copy of that pattern...Max will need some of these in the future! Always love your fabric choices!!

  6. So fantastic. I love the girlie ones too. I just cute out the pattern pieces for the first time and am anxious to give it a try. Do you thinkg that volume fabric is still available I saw it once before and love it.

  7. Raven! I tried Kombucha & love it. How was your first brew?? I just love these little girly pants. Do you sell them? I noticed you have a tag on them. So so cute!!
