The Tabitha Pants are comfortable and practical as well as super cute. The fit is full with a generous crotch depth and an elastic pull-on waist ---plenty of room for a diaper for littlies. The cute braces style straps look so special as well as keeping the pants up --- always helpful for small kids. The straps are elasticated at the back. The style is suitable for all seasons --- it can be made in a wide variety of medium weight woven fabrics e.g. velveteen, pin-whale corduroy, light weight denim and drill, plain and printed cotton poplin or homespun. Not suitable for knit fabrics. I used velveteen for the main fabric and a coordinating cotton print as the contrast with a pretty braid trim on the straps and pockets.
