Giveaway One (Alien duds)

The winner of this giveaway will win a very delightful little pair of duds, a unique OOAK pikki tint collaboration!

The pantts are cut from a beautiful certified organic denim, that is soo soft and glorious. It continues to soften on washing and is the ONLY denim I will work with now.  They are designed to be quite a loose fit and easily fit over any cloth nappy (Toby is wearing a Very Baby AIO underneath here).

They have been handpainted by Megsie from pint with one of her adorable little aliens in high quality textile paint.  You may have seen these cute little aliens in softie form before, but this is the first one to grace an item of clothing!!! So these are super special.

The pants feature three pockets cut from a Japanese cotton called 'Retro Spot'. This is a lovely thick and robust cotton with spots of green and brown. The green matches the alien in colour exactly!! (the colour in the photos is not quite accurate) The pockets have also been fully interfaced for additional strength.  The shorts are triple stitched through the crotch area for extra durability and have an adjustable waist.

The sizing fits a wide size range.

These are cut to my standard size one short pattern, but feature a longer length leg.  They will fit from about 6-9 months as baggy pants, through to a size 1 and 2 as 3/4 length pants right through to the toilet trained young child as long shorts.
Toby is an average sized two-year old and as you can see there is still plenty of room in these for growth.

They will fit for a long long time!!!

Waist: adjustable
Hips: 70cm/27.5"
Rise: 46cm/18"
Inner leg length: 18cm/7"
