Plaid Nowhere Man Pants

If you follow me on Facebook [and if you don’t, you totally should], you might have seen me lamenting about how my four-year-old was refusing to wear the pants I made for him.

I may have taken it completely personally and had to eat some chocolate to make myself feel better.

But, as it is with four-year-olds, today he had absolutely no problem putting on said pants. In fact, he was so excited that he got dressed before I had to ask a second time.  Not that I ever have to ask him a second time… ;)

Well, my silly little boy decided he did, in fact, love these pants. And so do I.

I had the honor of testing the Nowhere Man Pants pattern from Shwin & Shwin. It’s pretty much fantastic.

The button flaps are my favorite part, I think. I found these wooden buttons in my stash – I must have purchased them with a project in mind, but I never used them. They were the perfect touch for these pants, though.

These pants have front and back pockets. That’s pretty important for boys who like to carry around notes and cars and money found underneath couch cushions [or from Daddy’s nightstand…]

The pattern flows really nicely and comes together really quickly. Which is good, since now my four-year-old has informed me that he needs “lots more of these pants in his drawer” — go figure.

The pants are made of a lightweight plaid corduroy and were totally inspired by my grandfather’s rockin’ pants — I don’t have a lot of memories of him (unfortunately), but I definitely remember his amazing plaid pants.

What’s that… a smiling boy? Wearing the pants I made for him? Yep, mama for the win.

Linking up to some par-tays!
