Parsley Parsley Pants

Leave a comment

As soon as I saw Rae’s Parsley Pants, I knew I needed to make them in green for Liam. What kid doesn’t want green pants?

I found a bright green bull denim at Jo-Ann’s. First of all, let me just advise against using this fabric. It starts out very stiff, eventually softening up after several washings… but only after turning absolutely everything light-colored in your laundry GREEN. I mean, they’ve gone through the wash at least 5 times now and they’re still turning things green.

It ain’t easy being green. Kermit would know.

The bull denim fades a lot too, which is kind of nice looking, but makes the pants much more casual.

I wanted to add patch pockets but UGH the bull denim! *shakes fist* It was way too thick for my machine to handle all the layers after the pockets had been assembled.

Even better when you’ve got fruit snacks!
