KCWC – The Spiffiest Boy in Town

KCWC – The Spiffiest Boy in Town
October 14, 2011 Mary Jo

Working (mostly) all week for the Kids Clothing Week Challenge, and all I have to show for it are these beastly pants and the raglan top I whipped up today.  I hate this pants pattern, with a vicious, intense hatred.  I made two valiant attempts at it – the first pair of pants to be born of it were garbage and hence have taken up residence there.  These are better, with a dozen modifications, and still they’re too big for this little guy.  It’s so hard to fit the waist and butt of a boy who switches between bulky cloth diapers and pull-ups, depending on how lazy I am.  And one of my (many) modifications inadvertently took off a bit of the rise, so there’s a perpetual plumber’s crack no matter which diaper he’s wearing.  Boo.

The shirt, though, went together with no pain whatsoever.  I’m going to make a whole shopping-cart’s-worth pile of these, because Damn!  That boy has no winter shirts at all.

Hope your sewing week was more fruitful.  Not that it’s over – two days left.  But I’m outta here and will be leaving the sewing machine behind in favor of the more portable knitting needles.
