Sewing again

Back to the basics of this blog: sewing for a boy. I finaly finished a pant (man, did that waistband trouble me. And still it's not perfect, because the beltloops are to small.)

These pants are made from an old skirt from my mom. It's a bit out of the box for me, colourwise, but I like the way they turned out. As I was afraid that the wool would itch, I lined the pants. I am pleased with the shape. Rather slim and more suitable for this fabric than a baggy one, I think. Still have to redo the beltloops, because he needs a belt with this one, as some of you might see.

My mother has given me another of her old skirts, I might make another pant. Then I will sew the fold as the versitale Mma. Zsazsa did here.

And this morning a made a hat, because Pelle's old one is becoming to small.

The hat is a bit tight, as the fabric is not as stretchy as the fabric recommended in the pattern (the fabric's like a towel - can't come up with the English name right now- with a little strech). But he hasn't removed it yet, and that's already quite unusual. This boy is like his father, not fond of wearing anything on the head.

  1. The pants look wonderful! While I will agree with you that it's not your normal color choice, they're still quite stylish in a vintage sort of way, and it's a great way to recycle fabric that still has a lot of wear left in it. You did a fantastic job matching the plaid, as well.
