Description

A pair of jeans for my soon-to-be 3 year old son, made from leftover stretch denim from a skirt, my reversible denim vest, previously posted, and my “stuck in reverse” bag (I know, I bought a lot of denim). He saw me sewing the pants and went: “I’m not wearing them”, as usual… we shall see…

I based these on a very simple pj pant pattern, Butterick 5286, with an elastic waistband, but went with patch front and back pockets instead of on the side. I also added my very first buttonholes for pull strings to help adjust the waist. No buttons or zipper, as I totally chickened out on them. The topstitching is messy, but It served me as practice, and I also decided to do flat-felled seams (thanks sewhappyclothes for the tutorial), which was much easier than expected, only because I did not do any fitting.
