The cutest whale longies!!

When I saw this whale fleece I just had to have it. I love whales! We don't use fitteds, so I just made them to go over her pockets, but I love these because sometimes it's hard to find pants that fit over cloth diapers well, and obviously longies are made to do that!

I used the Katrina pattern, and it was my first try at longies, went way faster than I expected!

I used a knit band for the top since it isn't to cover a fitted, and it makes it a nice fit. I also hemmed the bottom with about 2" left so I could let them back out if I needed to. Now I know what type of pants to make if I need more pants!



And action shots!

Don't knock it til you try it The most challenging part was to develop a pattern for the legs so they would be facing down, rather than sticking out at wide angles. I mean, which way do most legs point...down, right? LOL!
