Winter Wear Designs Blog Tour8:00 AM
If you've been following my blog, then you already know how much I LOVE Winter Wear Designs. So when I was asked if I wanted to be part...
here and here. It probably wouldn't surprise you to know I have already made 4 pair for myself and have many more planned. I just LOVE this pattern. Comfy yet also stylish. And you can dress it up or down depending on fabrics.
What you don't know is that there is also great love in our house for the Kid's Aviator Pants! My eldest owns 4 pairs of these. 4! Yet somehow none of them have been blogged. I'm not sure how that happened, but these pants definitely deserve some love too!
There's actually been a lot of talk about pockets around here lately. You see, I'm a fast and dirty seamstress. That means that I cut every possible corner I can. That means skipping pockets whenever possible. But, that has finally caught up with me. Both my husband and my daughter have felt the need for an intervention. They have more or less begged me to stop skipping the pockets. As much as I like fast, I too have realized the detriment of skipping pockets. You see I skipped out on the pockets on my WWD Provence Coat. Every time I put that coat on, I ask myself, "Why did you skip the pockets?!" Coats with no pockets means cold hands and no where to store your gloves. So take the time, sew at least a few of the pocket options.
So today's WWD Aviator Pants are in a cozy, warm poly fleece from Joanns. While we've had an incredibly mild winter so far here in Central Jersey, its definitely still cold enough for fleecy warmness. I'm so thankful that my daughter was willing to humor me and took off her coat and sweater so we could get these great photos at our local park. You'll notice we even have bright green grass thanks to some unusually warm weather.
