kcwc: his outfit

10.16.2011

 A long sleeve raglan tee:


And a pair of Treasure Pocket Pants:

[just noticed this pic makes it look like I made one pant leg longer than the other, I promise they're the same length!]

A match made in boy heaven I do say.


I love knits for kids.  I love them most because they're the clothes my kids pick out more often than most of woven fabric garments I've made (at least tops that is).  I love these patterns (both in the Sewing for Boys book I reviewed earlier).  This knit shirt is the easiest shirt you'll ever make, no hemming, love that.  I think it took me about an hour to make the shirt and that includes pattern tracing and fabric selection time.  I had to add the little beep! to the front, sorry I'm such a sucker for cute.  And my nephew is such a little cutie, I can't wait to see pictures of him wearing these clothes (his mommy is always so good about showing me the things I make in action).

The pants weren't as quick to make, but I really enjoyed making them.  I didn't use a serger at all.  I kind of love that.  French seams and turn and stitch seams make for a super professional and sturdy pair of pants!  And the faux fly, it's over the top cute.  Lots of great details you won't find in many store bought clothes.


That about wraps up what I made for the kcwc.  Fun was had by all!  Hope you have a super awesome Sunday!  Thanks for reading.  ♥

  1. Wow lovely, lovely, I have the book but not yet had time to really devour it! Love the fabric for the trousers I think I have a small bit left from another project but probably not enough for 2yr old trousers! Great job - sure he'll be delighted.

  13. I adore this - the beep! and the wonderful transportation fabric on the pants. I have been debating about whether or not to get this book as I am currently juggling about five others, but you have me sold. It's such a great combo - your nephew will be thrilled!
