Meet your new, "go to" pants pattern!
The Pudding Pants are going to be your kids new favorite pants. An easy sewing project with some strikingly cool looks, that couldn't be comfier! Get ready to fall in love with all the different looks you can make: the color-blocked version has built-in pockets; the solid version is just quick and simple. Love the pockets but don't want to do two different fabrics? You can achieve a "non color-blocked" look by sewing the contrast version with the same fabrics! There are also three different hem options: regular hem, contrast ankle cuff, or rolled cuff plus optional pin-tucking (I am a huge fan of making them with the pin-tucks!) Time to pull out your best knits from your stash and start making some Pudding Pants!
・leg finishes include: contrast cuff, standard hem, or rolled cuff hem. ・optional Center Front pin-tucking ・solid color or color-blocked ・pockets (for color-blocked option only

File size: 14MB zipped
All of my patterns are packaged and sent in a zipped (compressed) folder which contains separate files for the following:
TWO PDF Pattern files: 1.) for the "contrast version with pockets" AND 2.) the "solid, no contrast version (no pocket)"
the "READ FIRST" instructions which are the detailed instructions of the pattern
a black and white version of just the sewing tutorial for those who like to print out instructions
an overview image of each the "contrast version with pockets" AND the "solid, no contrast version (no pocket)" to closely see how the pattern pages look when all put together (for reference purposes)
Some patterns also include a separate file for the face template patterns as well as an overview image of the templates.
This allows you to access only the information you require at any given step of the process without having a massive file open. To access the pattern after you receive them, right click on the zipped folder icon and instead of clicking "open", click "extract all" and then chose the folder you would like the files to be saved.
