That Boy Needs Some Pants!

9 Sep

At J.’s request, I am making him more new pants.  Riding on the success of the Sailboat Pants, I made him another pair of Oliver and S Sandbox Pants for the fall and winter.  J. outgrew the 18-24 month version of Sandbox Pants I made him when he was learning to walk.  Since I loved the way they first ones turned out,  I decided to make him another pair only bigger (size 3).  Like last time around, I used wide-whaled brown corduroy.  For the waistband and pocket liners, I used fabric from Rosemarie Lavin’s  Spa line.

To get him really excited about the pants in hopes he would wear them, I added baseball buttons to the back. J. and H. helped me sew on the buttons this morning before we left the house.

J. was excited to try them on. They are still big, but he will grown into them soon enough.

I have fabric cut out to make another pair of Sandbox Pants.  A post will soon follow.

And on a sew-along note: my first post went up today on the Sew, Mama, Sew blog.  Many of the tips outlined on how to attaches sleeves to the armholes, can be used for any pattern with in-set sleeves.

    Very cute! Love the fabric choices and the way they turned out. I think I need to order that pattern to add to my stack of items to make!
