I just finished these trousers for my little boy to wear to the Queen's Jubilee celebration in our village on Monday! They are the Treasure Pocket Pants from Sewing for Boys. My mom (jerry&kay) gave me the book for Mother's Day and this is the first chance I've had to make something from it. There's a sew-a-long for the book going on at boy, oh, boy, oh, boy but I just can't keep up!
Here they are with just the hem.
Here they are with the hem rolled up.
This is probably how my little guy will wear them. He tends to be thicker but shorter than most. :-)
I'm excited for him to try them on tomorrow and hope they fit!
One thing I learned from making these trousers is what "bar tack" means. I like it.
My favorite part are the pockets. I hope Canaan stores lots of his treasures in them!
I also loved how the waistline was done with two narrower pieces of elastic instead of just one wide one.
I'll post pictures soon of them on my little guy as well as my little girl's Jubilee dress with its finishing touches!
Happy Jubilee! :-)
