Another pair of quick change trousers... and it's beginning to look a bit like Christmas

Talking to a friend about the oh so dreamy quick change trouser pattern reminded me that I had made another pair
The quick change trouser pattern is in Anna Maria Horner's handmade beginnings, and this pair were even quicker as I limited my fabric choice this time! See Jude's cheery pair here.

The main fabric is a soft denim, with an even softer blue gingham flannel for lining. All the fabrics were from the pile so no longer sure where they came from... And the sweetest bit about this pattern is the  view from the back
I made these up in the 12-18 months for a soon to be one year old (who is now most certainly a one year old, and has been for a few months, it has just taken me an age to add these photographs). That is just to say that the sizing seems just right with this pattern. Hope you had a fun first birthday, Albie!

And the Christmas part? Well, after the excitement of opening the advent calendar started on Sunday, followed by a trip to London to see the lights and Christmas displays and Patch's first visit to the magic of Hamley's, and arriving at school on Monday morn to find the classroom transformed... Patch is now oh so keen to make our home all Christmassy. I do feel rather festive after wrapping up Patch's twenty four Christmas books for his advent book pile this weekend, and possibly a Starbuck's red cup helped! Maybe we shall go and choose our Christmas tree soon...
