KCWC – The Spiffiest Boy in Town

Working (mostly) all week for the Kids Clothing Week Challenge, and all I have to show for it are these beastly pants and the raglan top I whipped up today.  I hate this pants pattern, with a vicious, intense hatred.  I made two valiant attempts at it – the first pair of pants to be born of it were garbage and hence have taken up residence there.  These are better, with a dozen modifications, and still they’re too big for this little guy.  It’s so hard to fit the waist and butt of a boy who switches between bulky cloth diapers and pull-ups, depending on how lazy I am.  And one of my (many) modifications inadvertently took off a bit of the rise, so there’s a perpetual plumber’s crack no matter which diaper he’s wearing.  Boo.

The shirt, though, went together with no pain whatsoever.  I’m going to make a whole shopping-cart’s-worth pile of these, because Damn!  That boy has no winter shirts at all.

Hope your sewing week was more fruitful.  Not that it’s over – two days left.  But I’m outta here and will be leaving the sewing machine behind in favor of the more portable knitting needles.

    Plumber or no plumber, those pants are darn cute!! And the shirt~obviously we love it! What patterns are you using? So that I don’t buy into the hatred of one and do buy into the charm of the other?
    I’m needing to get our littlest into a warm coat~that will be a challenge in and of itself. She is still tiny, and most coat patterns start out at a size 3 she’d swim in even at the age of 5!
