Retro bell pants

Our girl loves retro clothing. She has been wearing these pants until I took it away from her closet because they were way too short. So I decided to make another pair. The last time I colour blocked the bell pants (see a video on how to here). This time I kept it simple and I just sewed the fit pants from Mamma Can Do It* without any colour blocking.

The fit pants is a great pattern because it includes many different types of pants. It includes 4 different types of pants: skinny pants, regular pants, wide pants and bell bottom pants. I sewed the bell bottom pants. There are also 4 different lengths includes, so you can sew all different types of pants with this pattern. The fit pants are available in baby sizes, kids, women’s and men sizes. 

The previous time I used a sweat fabric which wasn’t very stretchy. This time I used stretch corduroy, which quite some stretch to it. I had to adapt the pants after I sewed them and tried them on our girl. Because of the stretchy material they turned out a bit longer than expected. 
Our dress loving girl loves her new pants and already wore them several times. So I think more will follow.

Fabric: stretch corduroy from Nooteboom textiles, the red stretch corduroy comes from Textielstad
