Dear Flickr: Thank you for making it about twice as fast for me to blog my sewing projects.
My son turned three on Saturday the 7th and I spent the day (besides cooking, cleaning, and kidcare) in a sewing marathon making him these pants. I finished them ten minutes before we were due at the restaurant for his birthday celebration.
Here we see the adorable spider-patch made by LoriV at Etsy (who has since disappeared). I originally commissioned this patch for Sophie but my very considerate daughter was willing to let me put it on her brother’s pants, as a birthday present. How sweet!
The back of the pants indicate plenty of room should they eventually be passed along to a boy still in diapers, and if you look closely you can see I only bothered to make three belt carriers. First off, my son doesn’t own nor wear a belt. Secondly, I would rather sew an entire prom dress than make and attach belt carriers. Ugh! I really enjoy the look of the flat-front / elastic backwaist. For kids with their slim hips and virtual no-ass, it works well.
Dear Billy: Thank you for coming over and taking pictures for me, since I’ve got no camera.
