I don't know why I haven't completed more pairs of the Daphne Knickers by Violette Field Threads, as it really IS a great, simple pattern! One can doll it up with the ruffles, but I kept things simple by leaving them out (read: laaaaaaazy/ain't nobody got time). The first pair, I made a MILLION years ago here.
Anyway, f'real, there are technically three pattern pieces, I think, so, they sew up insanely fast, if you leave out the ruffles. The only thing that DOES slow a person down is the binding at the cuffs. That can get a bit fiddle, as it's a small area, and I had to fix the first one after my first try. I'm sure there was much cussing at the sewing machine (side note: as a kid, I firstly NEVER cussed...and secondly, we didn't use that term in northern Michigan; we said "swearing"....anyone else??!).
I had originally purchased this fabric for an All Spice Dress by Paisley Roots, but I knew I NEEDED it for the capris when I was looking through my stash, so, I'll need something else for the All Spice (first time I made it here)! I just love me some cute florals - also, this fabric is a RARE Joann Fabrics purchase. :O Speaking OF, I do plan to make a Paisley Roots Saffron soon, as that is, hands-down, one of Camden's favorite dresses EVER (also, I SWEAR I blogged the first version, but I can't find the post).
Anywho.....short enough post for a simple enough project!!!
