Duds for Dudes Tour
Today I’m joining up with the Duds for Dudes Tour with Mabel Madison fabric shop! If you’ve never purchased from Mabel Madison, you are truly missing out!
Disclaimer: I was given a discount for my purchases for being part of this blog tour, but all opinions are my own.
Sometimes finding boy-friendly fabrics can be tricky. But what I love about Mabel Madison is they have such a wide selection!Let’s talk first about this knit. Sewing knits is my jam, and ohmygoodness I’m in love with this Adorable Animals Euroknit! It is luscious. The perfect thickness, and this print! I can’t even handle who much I love it.
This print is available in a pink colorway too, and if I had a girl, I would totally buy them both. The tee is self-drafted, and is my favorite style of tee to make for my littles.
Now onto the pants! I adore these pants. I used the same self-drafted pattern for the pants I made for Project Run and Play (you can also see I made the same style shirt… see? I told you how much I love it!). I adore flared pants on little boys.
The denim twill in fire red from Mabel Madison is absolutely amazing. I often find twill to be stiff, even after it’s been washed, but that is NOT the case with this twill. It’s soft – but not too soft – and sturdy.
It’s perfect for pants! My little guy loves to run and jump and climb and play in the woods around our house, and these do not hold him back. They’ll definitely take awhile before the knees bust out (which is an inevitability in our house).
Psst: the pockets have some Spiderman fabric from my stash in the pockets… that was a big hit. ;)
The vintage piping is the perfect touch. I really do love piping on pants. :)
Both the shirt and pants will eventually be patterns – I have about five in my queue right now. Moving threw me off schedule a bit, but I have some coming soon. Make sure to join my Facebook group, because I’ll be looking for testers for my next patterns within the next few weeks!
I’m so glad to have been a part of the Duds for Dudes tour! I love supporting indie fabric shops, and Mabel Madison carries such high quality fabrics and have such fabulous customer service that I can put my firm stamp of approval on their brand.
If Only They Would Nap… (you’re here!)
I LOVE this outfit! I’m glad to hear about the quality of the twill and how much you like it. The shirt and pants are adorable.
