I wasn't sure that I was going to have time to participate in the Kids Clothes Week
Summer Challenge so I didn't sign up. I got a fantastic piece of camouflage fabric that screamed "Boys Cargo Pants". I ended up working on them the week of the challenge, so I signed up on Day 2!
I figured on pattern sizes and traced off patterns. The pattern I chose didn't have *any* pockets! GASP!
So I had to figure those pattern pieces myself. It also had bell bottoms that I straightened out. I had a pair of pants that fit Andy perfectly that I used as inspiration
I cut out all the pieces except the front pockets.
|I used almost all the fabric. This is all the scraps I had left!|
This was my birthday and I wasn't home much. When I was home, it was so hot I didn't feel like doing very much. I worked on picking the hem out of a sheet I was going to use for the pockets (It gave me another 1½ inches!)
I wasn't sure if I'd get the pockets done after all. I had a son who wanted me to play with him!
|Who could resist such a cutie?|
But then his favorite show came on (Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood) and he went to watch that, so I worked on the pockets after all.
I was hoping to get the cargo and back pockets sewn on, but doing the front pockets took longer than anticipated, so I didn't get them on.
|Side seam sewn|
|Velcro added to the cargo pockets and flaps|
Attached the pockets and sewed the inseam.
Finishing touches: Crotch seam, hems, and waistline.
