How About Some Pants

This is Why I Needed That Shirt

I made these shorts for Tristan back in March from black denim and some fabric I got from one of Sally‘s tag sales. I still have not been able to find a shirt to go with them. I have searched everywhere. Actually, that’s not true. Martha offered this shirt as part of her garment-a-day-in-May and in an appropriate size. I even told Hannah and Dawn I would fight them for it. In the end none of us were able to get it though…. hrmmph. So the pattern for the pants is just a basic elastic-waist pant that was shortened to knee-length. If you have urchins a basic elastic-waist pant is just the thing to have in your repertoire. So now, anybody seen a black/white/yellow shirt….

    Those pants are too cute. I’m hoping Martha will put more of those shirts in the shop since I know two boys who would love it!

    I cut out a pile of pants/capris for the boys and just need to get my act together before it is fall!

    I agree that elastic-waist pants are crucial–but not just for urchins! I crank out several pairs each spring and fall, as my son (10) and daughter (5) wear them almost every day. I wear them, too! What could be comfier, cheaper, or easier to sew?

    Tristan looks so happy in his shorts….

    I thought this white tee from Crazy 8 would go great…it’s has a yellow gas pump on it for the little buses/cars on his cute! pants. I think your little “T” is cuter though =)

    No advice on shirts except to reiterate someone else’s Old Navy suggestion.
    Cute cute pants, though and cute little guy!
