KCWC: Corduroy Pants
KCWC is slow-going these days. Apparently children think that napping is optional during this week. Mama does not agree. But nonetheless, we have pants!
These pants are a modified version of the Nowhere Man pants pattern. You can see a previous pair that I’ve sewn here.
I used a dark green, thinner corduroy from JoAnn’s. I also used the same plaid fabric for the front and back pockets.
I made the pant legs skinnier than the pattern indicates – my little dude is ridiculously skinny. Plus I extended the length well past the size 5 where the pattern ends. [They’re a bit long for now, but not bad with shoes on – and room to grow!]
I also left off the button flaps from the front of the pants. A little cleaner and simpler this time. It’s a great pattern, though, and a pretty easy sew.
I’m working on some more pieces for this week. But I’m not pushing myself to complete something each day. Baby number four takes a bit more energy to grow than the first three did, apparently. ;)
Leave a link if you’re sewing something for KCWC – I’d love to see!
Linking up with Make it Wear it.
I really like these. I have a different pair cut, but I’ll mark these pants to sew for sure! This was todays KCWC project at our house http://onceuponasewingmachine.com/the-little-red-jumper-day-3-kcwc/
oh i love your jumper! super cute. :)
I love this pattern, I have it but actually find that it’s really, really narrow – your little man must be super skinny!!
I’m pregnant with No 4 as well – 5 1/2 weeks to go, and I don’t think I’ve ever been so tired in my life, throughout the whole pregnancy – just ridiculous really! Cannot wait for it to be over.’
My MIL has my 2 youngest tomorrow, so the plan is for me to actually get some sewing done – I’m very excited – it doesn’t happen much :)
Cute, cute pants, well done! Love reading your posts.
yes, my oldest is SOOO ridiculously skinny. i actually think i should’ve cut them even skinnier than i did!
congrats to you on your new baby too!! hope this last month goes by quickly. that’s always the toughest part. and lucky you for having a day for sewing! hooray!!
Love these. I was tired enough during baby number 3 can’t imagine growing another. I think if you see anything all week you’re an amazing women!
oh you are so sweet, thank you. :)
So cute!! I love finding ideas for sewing for boys as that is pretty foreign for me. Glad I have you as a reference! :)
Love these. Super adorable!
