Cleaning out my fabric stash this weekend, I found some corduroy I had forgotten about and was suddenly inspired to make some pants for the boys. (See, this is my problem....it's APRIL...I should be making shorts, not pants that they'll only wear for a few more weeks, and then I'll put away until fall when they no longer fit. Why do I do that?). Anyway, I made these easy elastic waist pants by my favorite method--tracing a pair of their favorite pants for the pattern--I love wide legs for boys pants. And these fabrics are just too fun (how 70's does Ezra look in those brown ones?!) And then, I made a matching pair for Ezra's doll Stanley (in photo 3). Here they are, in all their silliness:
I hear so much disbelief from people when they hear that I make pants for the boys without a "pattern", but I swear it's so easy, YOU can do it too! ;) Kath, of Red Current posted a wonderful tutorial here last week on how to do just that--complete with photos.
Okay, now on to shorts. ;)
