Duck Butt Designs. People get so excited these days about ruffles and color blocking that they sometimes forget what a joy it is to find a well written pattern for something simple that can be a staple of their child's wardrobe. Chris and Christy’s All Season PJ Bottoms by Jennifer Gunn of Snuggle My Baby patterns is so well written with clear and precise instructions and pictures that beginners will have no problem with the project while more advanced sewers will be able to jump right in without having to wade through endless pages of introduction; the whole file is only 26 pages. The sizing and fabric charts are easy to follow. Jennifer includes beautiful diagrams to help with maximizing yardage. The pattern does not include layers, but the layout and lines are foolproof and the labeling is superb. My first thought when working with a new pattern for pants is always about the rise - will they fit nicely over a diapered bottom?
Putting these pants together is
a breeze. I always appreciate designers who have the leg seams sewn
first and then the curve for the crotch; it makes for much better lines
on a finished product.
