Big Boy Pants for the Big Boy!
I got Anna Maria Horner's Handmade Beginnings almost a year ago and have wanted to make her Quick-Change Trousers for nearly that long. I finally did it.
You may have noticed that the fabric of these pants look a little worn. There are a number of good reasons for that. First, this was my first time using this pattern and something usually goes wrong the first time (at least for me). Second, I didn't actually follow the pattern, I made a few changes, which also usually goes wrong the first time. Third, the little man needs more pants, especially warm ones, so I used my oldest, but still cute, lumberjack shirt for the fabric.
You might not be able to tell from this picture, but the front pockets from the shirt are now thigh pockets. What what!
Now that I know what I'm doing, I'll work my way up to using the SUPER CRAZY BEAUTIFUL Loulouthi flannels from Anna Maria Horner that I got in the mail last week.
By Christmastime, this boy is going to be swimming in pants.
