While looking for school clothes for my oldest son, I realized I should just make some. I figured if I could come up with a decent pants pattern, I could make a few pairs that would suit him. My son picked out striped turquoise and grape fabric from Etsuko Furuya's Echino line.
I used the pattern making method I learned at my Machine Project Sewing 102 class. The pattern is inspired by the Mini Boden sailing trousers I purchased earlier in the summer for both the boys.
I have a habit of making patterns too large and these pants were no exception. The proportions, however, came out perfectly. I was easily able to alter the pants so they fit great. I will amend my pattern before I make another pair. In doing so, I hope I'll develop a better sense for making more true to size patterns.
The pants were received with true delight.
And I know I'm his mom and all, but I think he's about the cutest guy on the planet. I love his style along with everything else.
