Yet another hippo garment for the little hippo fanatic!
I ordered this fabric in yellow and pink a while ago, when she was much littler, and when half a yard would have sufficed for a garment. Unfortunately I have been too lazy to sew it up! With the sad result that despite desperately piece-ing the yellow fabric, I still had to ‘patch up’ with pink on the cuffs.
The trouser pattern is from Dana at Made, using the Flat Front variation, and was very easy to make. I put a patch pocket on the front, because she likes to peep at her pocket-treasure every so often, and how is she going to monitor the state of the treasure when it’s located over her bum?
1/2 yard + a few bits of Japanese cotton-linen blend. Very comfortable, so much so that she wanted to wear them to sleep! I had to tell her (rather indignantly) that these were ‘going-out’ trousers, not pajamas!
