I’m Liberty from Libby Dibby Quilts. This is the first clothing item I made from double gauze. I figured I would start small, since I didn’t know much about sewing with it.
I started with pants for the smallest person in my family, and made them while he napped. When he woke up, I showed them to him and he literally said, “WOW! WOW! WOW!”
I made them for my little guy when he was 2yo, with extra large folded over cuffs so that I could let out the length a year later (which I have had to do now) … the blue has faded a bit after many washings, but the fabric hasn’t shrunk and the pants are so soft and light, he calls them his “comfy pants.”
Since he’s a boy, I also made them with enclosed (French) seams, rather than serged edges – I figured he might rip right through a simple seam. These have held up really well for being something that a preschool boy wears. And they definitely gave me the courage to try more clothing from double gauze.
By the way, I used Premier Archer Embrace Cobalt
And now that he’s 3, the hems have been let out and they still get lots of wear.
