He also wanted to show off his new-to-him toy which is 'really strong', thus the face! My friend came over with a bag of hand-me downs including toys. Her son is 6 years older. Talking of years...the fabric is from Fanny's Fabrics back in the mid 90's. Glad I finally made them, even if 20 years later...
Lots of top stitching on these pants - they get worked hard - with front and back pockets for the 'bad man' (action man) to be put into.
Found the waistband a bit too wide and have made notes for future sewing. My kids like wearing their pants low...and we're not even close to teenage years yet!
The pants were pre-cut for the Shekinah Retreat, but weren't finished there. However, they were finished in time for Christmas. Have you ever seen a boy so excited to get clothes!?!
The pattern is my go-to-pants pattern for my boy, Oliver + S Sandbox pants, a downloadable pattern.
