Do you remember my One Thimble Tour post about the Orbis Skinny Harems? Well the Orbis Harem pattern has now been release back to the designer and there is a little celebration to kick them off for a second time. I do love this pattern. It’s a fairly quick sew and my girls think they are super comfy. It’s a co-ed pattern, so if you sew for boys and girls this pattern will go far for you. We’ve had a hard go with weather being super cold this week, so please hang with us and don’t miss out on the great features of this pattern.
For this post I wanted to try a few things with my Orbis. The first thing that I did was to stitch my pocket on making the loopers from my coverstitch visible. This is such a fun look, and to be honest with you, it is a lot easier to sew the pocket on in this fashion. I love the character that this gives the pants.
The second thing I did was to change up the waistband. The waistband is a knit band with elastic casing. I thought I would switch things up a bit and eliminate the elastic and make a yoga waistband instead. My girls like a yoga band and I do too, so it was a good choice for us. To make the yoga waistband I simply doubled the height of the waistband piece and removed and inch from the width. It worked out great.
This pair is a perfect layer for heading to and from ballet class. I definitely need to put together something for a matching top. We loved this knit I snagged from JoAnn’s with the metallic stars. I sure hope it washes up well after a few rounds with the Gobin girls. They really do wear things down quickly these days.
