Costa Mesa, Cali...
Skinny pants are so hard to find for my little guy, or they are terribly expensive for the little use he will get out of them, I bought some really adorable skinny jeans back when asos still sold childrens wear, I still squeeze him into them but hey are getting to the point of ‘ridiculously short’ so I had to give in.
But they came in handy when drafting the pattern for this cuffed pair of skinnies for him.
They have pockets both on the front and back because he needs a place to keep spare change for the icecream truck. Adjustable waistband so they can grow with him, and snaps to close, no zipper because its sometimes tricky to zip up a fussy toddler.
I made the pants from a large piece of stretch denim like pinstriped fabric, and the pocket linings were made from some scraps from curtains I made a while back.
Sielh loves his skinnies, and the great thing is that now I have a whole bunch more pant projects on the way. No more wasting time surfing the internet for cute toddler skinnies
