It’s Kid’s Clothing Week! That means it is time to sew for my boys. Oh, wait. I usually sew for them anyhow. (And I'd had this project cut out for awhile.)
I made some super fun pants for my oldest! They are LOOOONG. Which is great. Because he is TALLLLL. And skinny. So they should fit next year, too.
And the theme is UPCYCLED!!! I clearly LOVE upcycling (just check my blog archives under repurposing)
I upcycled a pair of Woolworth pants that were my dad’s. They were also lined pants, but I was surprised at their construction of the original pant…they just put the fabrics wrong sides together and sewed. I like to construct two pairs of pants and then attach them with wrong sides together at the waist. It hides all the seams. (I also made other pants a few years ago using this same tactic. They barely were worn by this guy.)
Here is a photo of the pockets.
And the lining at the waist. It is elastic.
And the back. Dark photo. Bummer. (It’s a little cold here for extensive photos.)
The pattern is from Peek-A-Boo patterns and was super easy to follow and sew. It’s the coastal craze baggies pattern (affiliate links). I sized up since the pattern is meant for knits and these pants are woven fabric. I hacked it to make it into pants. I traced a pair of my biggest little guy’s pants and added two inches to make the long leg. You can see other coastal craze baggies I have made. And here, too.
The vest I shared last week for the biggest little guy.
