Favorite Pants


Ever since I started sewing pants for E, he’s had a favorite pair. A pair that if it’s clean and in the drawer will most certainly be worn. Over and over and over. The first pair that I can remember was this pair of Dapper Dillingers, which now are so threadbare at the knees that Clementine never wore them (serves me right for making pants out of quilting cotton without kneepads). These Saffron Pants are definitely his current favorite. They are an early version of the Parsley Pants that I made as part of my Celebrate the BOY collection last winter. I’m particularly fond of the pintucks on these pants (quick tutorial on that can be found here and is included in the Parsley Pants pattern)


I couldn’t resist showing you the outfit he picked here, partly because his hair is SO GLORIOUS but also because the outfit actually coordinates. He wears clothing I’ve made him pretty much every day, but usually picks odd combinations of stripes and prints (actually, now that I think about it, it would be great to blog some of the more hilarious combinations as well). This is the shirt that he wore for the first day of school this year (also made by me with one of my own patterns). I love the Kokka fabric on the shirt not only because of the cute elephant print but because it’s really soft.


Have a fantastic weekend everyone!!

  1. So cute! I love the bright colors that you make him in his clothing, but if I did the same my husband would kill me I think for our little guy : ). Love the combinations though! I’m sure you are so proud that he chooses to wear the clothing you’ve made him daily and enjoys it…that says a lot!!!

  2. The whole outfit is amazing. I love the fact he wears mummy-made clothes most of the time πŸ™‚ Good work coordinating pants and the shirt – they look fantastic together πŸ™‚

  3. Your son looks fantastic is his ‘mum made’ clothes. I love it when my boys pick things that I made them out of the drawer over and over. I also notice that they do that most often when I make things in bright colours, just like Elliot!
