At School and Play {SisBoom Pattern Tour}


Hey friends!! My last Back to School stop is finally here.  I’ve been having so much fun playing will tons of different designer’s patterns and touring along with so many creative bloggers over the last month.  Today I’m a stop along the Sisboom Pattern Co “At School, and At Play” tour.  I’m super exciting to be sharing my first Sisboom make that isn’t a top or dress.


For my project I planned a casual outfit for heading to school.  I used the Sisboom Katie pants pattern.  If you are familiar with the pants you are probably noticing I’ve got pockets that are slightly different from the original pattern.  I did a little hack job on these. I’m kinda a pocket lady and so are my girls.


Hack Debrief

For the pockets I cut my front pant pieces using the low right cut line.  Then totally eyeballed where I thought the front pockets should fall.  I used my rotary cutter and ruler to make the cut.  After that, I used the trimmed piece of the pants as a template to modify the front pocket lining. After that I used fairly common pocket construction.  I placed the front pocket lining right sides together against the front pant front, stitched on the angle I had just cut, flipped, pressed and top-stitched for each pocket.  After that, I placed the back pocket lining right sides against the front pocket lining and sewed around the edges being sure to line up the top and sides of the pocket with the top and sides of the pants.  I then basted the pocket linings to the pants at the top and sides where they overlap.  I constructed the pants per directions until getting to the waistband.  When cutting the waistband I first modified the piece by adding a half inch the the length.  Then I cut two sets instead of just one.  I stitched the waistband pieces on the short ends and then across the top creating an entire waistband rather than just a facing.  This was then attached to the pants like you would attach a binding.  I inserted the elastic and then finished per directions. They turned out beautifully.

  1. Those are great! Need to pull out the pattern again and try it on my dd that now loves to wear pants. At least I think I own it. Off to look….


  2. I wonder if these would work for boys? They look comfy
    I’m in Australia most if not all our schools have a uniform but my boy starts next year and wont fit the uniforms which start at a 4 (he’s only in a two now) so i am following along looking for ideas that will fit in with the uniform that i can make


  3. Love these pants! My almost two year old is in love with pockets right now! She loves to hid her little treasures from her big brother.
