I didn’t do them exactly matching (like Henry and his dad’s pants) but I used the same charcoal and black striped fabric for the main part of my pants and the bottom of Henry’s pants. If you are sewing stripes this is how to match stripes. Instead of going trendy track pants, I decided to make myself some comfortable lounge pants. So here are Henry and I in our lounging glory: no make-up and lots of fun.
Henry’s shirt is a Billy Button Bright Eyes Tee made from one of my husband’s old t-shirts. I love the argyle print on it. His pants are the Aviator Pants by Winter Wear Designs. I really love these pants and the awesome style lines. I used a true green sweatshirt fabric for the main part of the pants and a soft interlock for the bottom part. I also used it for the cuffs which was a little tricky but looks great in the end. I made a size 3 length and size 2 width.
I used the same interlock for my pants. It has a heavier interlock feel, but it’s really soft to the touch. I used a floral ponte de roma knit for the bottom. I wanted to make floral pants but couldn’t find floral sweatshirt fabric, so I decided to use ponte de roma instead. I love it. It’s a little too drapey for my liking, but it still works. I used some orange rib knit for the cuffs and waistband. I made a size small and lengthened it by four inches. I love the fit, tight but not too tight. (I’m even wearing them while I type this.)
We’re showing off out “triangles.”
We are cheesers. Henry had a lot of fun pushing the button for our pictures.
I couldn’t leave out my baby. I made her a simple hi-lo skirt. I made it hi-lo, so that it wouldn’t get it the way of her crawling. It turns out it doesn’t look hi-lo because of her adorable diaper baby bum. It’s the same floral fabric I used on this dress, shirt, and onesie. I paired it with pink tights and the gray cardigan I made before she was born.
