The pants took longer than I had anticipated as I was taking pictures of the construction along the way. I also ran into trouble with the welt pocket. Deciding last minute to add a detail you've never done before...not smart. But I understand how to do a welt pocket now and will definitely be doing more.
P wore the pants to church this morning so here are a few modeled pictures:
P does not typically wear his shirts tucked in but he agreed (after a bit of grumbling) so I could get some pictures of the waistband and back pocket.
I did add elastic to the back waistband as it was gaping a little at the center back.
As you can see, the welt pocket isn't perfect. I ended up using a satin stitch on either side of the pocket opening to cover a few oops. For fun, I used a Green Bay Packer fabric for the pocket lining.
The pants fill a hole in P's wardrobe and aren't completely boring with the addition of a few hidden Packer homages.:)
I didn't sew everything that was on my original list but I did take care of a project that has been on my to-do list for a few months (mock fly to zip fly tutorial) so I'm considering my participation in the Kids Clothes Week Challenge a success! In the spring, I plan on having all my projects traced and cut out so that I don't waste time dithering over what to make. That was a major motivation killer for me.
How did you do? I'm overdue for a bit of blog hopping and flickr pool looking...I can't wait to see all the amazing creations that were sewn!
