A month earlier than expected my nephew was born a couple of weeks ago. He is only little but has already begun his life with a big bang, and so I thought that I wanted to make him something.
As often occurs, After a few years of frequent wearing, my beloved pair of Japanese dennin trousers had to go…But, as we all know, an old pair of jeans is much softer than a new one…so, I decided to re use the material . For the inside face of the top, I used a colourfull thin cotton, which served me to hide the stitched from joining the bottom and top tarst both in the back and front.
As i often do for children clothing, i used snaps (two large one for the straps and 4 small ones for the sides). I added a detail by fixing two crayon buttons on the shoulders…
