Exhibit 4: Awesomest Pair of Pants on a 5-year-old ever

This week, as part of my personal countdown to KCWC, I’m throwing pictures at the blog of things I’ve made for the kids this year that never got blogged. It’s my own little challenge, to try and “clean out the virtual closet” before I go and make more clothes for them next week. I’ll even show you some of the new kids patterns I’ve been working on. Fun Fun!




I cut these pants out last December (you may remember me bemoaning my chronic procrastination and the ginormous pile of unfinished projects in a post entitled Overcoming Christmas Craft-Related Despair, this was one of those projects, I declared at the time that they would someday become “the Awesomest Pair of Pants on a 5-year-old ever”). I finally finished them last week. I am just going to have to accept that it takes me 10 months to complete things sometimes, there’s no getting around that sad, sad fact. I’m amazed they didn’t come out too short, actually. Way to go, me! *pats self on back*


Pattern is the (now discontinued) Dapper Dillingers by Patterns by Figgys, fabric from the Ruby Star Rising line, designed by Melody Miller for Kokka. One of my favorite prints ever.


He rocks these, clearly.

  1. the pattern is in their book, Sewing For Boys, if anyone wants it. These pants are rocking! And it makes me feel better that others do this too. I keep unearthing almost done projects in my studio!

    • oh that’s right — are you thinking of the little heartbreakers?…though I will say, the construction is quite different in the front — these have a front panel, no fly, and the heartbreakers have a all-the-way-across front waistband and a fly. but I’m pretty sure the leg/cuff is the same, or at least very similar, so the fit would look about like this!

  2. this fabric (and the pants from it) is one of my favs. i did a bag in it. which, coincidentally, is on my personal list of “items done but not blogged”.
    maybe it’s the fabric?
    yesss…that’s it.
