Jocole Blog Tour--Skinnies and Skorts and a Giveaway!

First up, my baby girl's skorts.
It's funny how excited a 15 month old can get over new clothes. 
Must be her older sister's influence....ha! 

I used Jocole's Faux-Wrap Skort pattern. 
No adjustments were made to the pattern--they were sewn in a quilting cotton that I had in my stash from a couple years back. 
They're perfect for a little girl on the move, and even though it's heading into Fall here, I think we'll get enough wear out of these, even in the house, or with tights underneath to make it look even more skirt-ish. 

If you follow me on Facebook at all, you may have heard about my hot pink skinny pants. 
Well, here they are, and I'm thrilled with how they turned out! 

I used Jocole's Skinny Pants pattern, and did have to make a few adjustments.
The waist was too big and the hips were perfect (even though I had blended sizes according to my measurements.) 
So, I took it in a bit at the side seams, tapering into the regular seam at the hips. 
I also added darts on the back, just above the pockets, to take in any gaping so that it wouldn't look bunched and saggy while on. 
The fabric is a slightly stretchy twill that I bought off a destash site on Facebook. 

They are super comfy with the yoga waistband! 
I now want to make many more in different fabrics...we'll see if I ever get to it, but I'm super happy with them.
