Costa Mesa, Cali...
Pants made from recycled Lacoste pants.
These were a little difficult to make since I had to merge a few pieces of scrap fabric together just to be able to get the pattern out. So some of the parts have unusual seams, but I tried my best to sew along the lines and make it almost unnoticeable.
I sewed these little petites up in about 2 movies. and I’m quite happy with the result, although I am a little disappointed that the back pockets came out so low. I would have liked them a bit higher, and the waist is a little high, but the last time I made pants for the kiddo, he was showing half his bottom, so I decided to veto going that route again.
I saved the lacoste crocodile to attach it, but now I can’t find it. I’m sure it will turn up soon.
