It’s Kids Clothes Week Challenge, so there may be a little bit of a sewing related overload this week – you’ve been warned.
Ok, I didn’t just whip these up in the twenty minutes that Kaya’s been napping. I cheated. But it was totally necessary. The temperatures dropped last week, it was suddenly cold, and this boy had no long trousers that fit him anymore.
Almost none. But he really needed some. Not that I’d be sewing for fun or anything. Ahem.
The pattern is the Orava sweatpants from Ottobre 4/2010, and I used a lovely and soft Cotton Jogging Sweat. The husband has requested I make him an adult size pair. Hmmm.. When’s Husbands Clothes Week Challenge?
I love the ribbing on the waistband and cuffs, especially if it’s stripey like on this one. I do love stripes. These pants were so quick and fun to make, and there have been no complaints from the little guy, so we’re all happy.
If you are looking for some, there’s a lot of inspiration to be found in the elsie marley flickr pool. Now I’m back to fighting with that pair of lined dungarees, but more on that another time.
Have a good start to your week, whatever it holds for you..
