Tag Team Sewing

Coleen needed some capris for summer.

We took some time last week and sewed up a couple of pairs. She made the blue ones and I made the khaki ones. This is the best way to teach her sewing. I can show her every step without doing any of it for her. She constructed these all on her own. She even serged the seams!

The pattern is from Ottobre Design 3/2009. The pants are full of great details - like these waistline pockets-

They also had a narrow waistband with an invisible zipper in the side seam. They have a long slit at the hem. Very cute!

What a neat way to teach a young lady to sew! She must be so proud!

Wow! I'm so impressed that Coleen made those capris herself! Congratulations to you both! :)
