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 of the WWD Blog Tour, I of course said yes! Be sure to follow along all week to see some fabulous creations by the other bloggers too! AND, if you you're missing any of these great designs, grab the coupon code at the end of this post. While I did receive a free pattern in exchange for this blog tour, all opinions remain my own.

On to my actual post. If you've been following along with my blog for a while now, you probably know about my great love for the WWD Aviator Pants. You can see me in 2 different versions 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!

The Aviator Pants come in sizes 18mo to 14. These are a knit cargo pant or short with optional slash front pockets, double welt back pockets, cargo pocket and triangle cut out. That's a lot of optional pockets.

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.

These pants include the front slash pockets and banded ankle. You can't see the ankle because I made these pants a little long, but I'm really happy with them. Hopefully it means that we'll make it through the next growth spurt without having to make MORE pants. The elastic in the waistband makes them stay on well without having to mess too much with the waistband. I really like them both for me and for my daughter. I have made several pair with the back double welt pocket. They look REALLY professional. But, my daughter never tucks in her pockets so she looks sloppy. That drives me crazy, so no welt pockets here. My absolutely favorite thing about these pants though is that they can be made in poly fleece. I have 2 poly fleece pairs that I wear over and over. I don't even care that 1 pair have bunnies all over them. Fuzzy warmness designs always win in winter for me. (pun totally intended) ;)
