Happy Kids Clothes Week!
When I planned for possible projects for the week, I decided I wanted to make a few things for Oscar. I’m trying, I really am, but I’m still struggling with the whole sewing-for-boys thing. There have been a few attempts here and there, but they’ve all left me feeling hemmed in by “boy” choices, and I just end up fantasizing about how the project might look if I were sewing for a girl.
These little pants, however, made me perfectly happy to be boy-sewing.
I started out with the Basic Newborn Pant pattern, a freebie available at Made by Rae. Kristin made Oscar two adorable pairs when he was born, and the longer pair still fits well at almost six months. So it seemed like a good pattern to play with.
The star knee patches (inspired by Mini Boden) were appliquéd with Steam-a-Seam 2, then secured with embroidery floss and a running stitch around the edges. If the patches look a little low it’s because he was asleep when I placed them, and that was my best guess. Baby proportions are elusive.
