[Still] Celebrating the Boy!

Over at Made and Made by Rae, there was a fabulous month-long event called Celebrate the Boy.  Oh, how lovely!  (Can I call a boy month lovely?  Too late.)  Being the boy-dominated household that we are, I love when the boy inspiration comes out of the blogging woodwork.

I didn’t really feel the push to sew like crazy for my boys, since I am boy-sewing all year long.  But I did crank out a few Boy Month inspired things.  My favorite was a pair of flat-front pants, based on Dana’s tutorial.

The pants are made out of a light, super soft corduroy (found at Hancock Fabrics).  I just love stripes on my boys!  And yes, I know it is a shock that I did NOT upcycle to make these pants!

I used a pair of well-fitting pants as a model for my pattern.  I just added a little bit to the waist and the booty, since E is a cloth diaper baby.

I’ve made a lot of pants for my boys, but trying the flat-fronts made me nervous.  But it was much easier than I had expected!  Next time I want to try the fake fly in front.  And I might even brave this button-fly tutorial from Trula Kids.

I see many more flat-front pants in my boys’ future!
