I wanted to do something really cool with this pattern to show it’s versatility. I realized I should go with my strengths and decided to refashion something, so I made these cobalt blue Hudson pants from a men’s XL sweater. I love the blue and the stripes, and the sleeves had elbow pads that I reused as knee pads. I paired it with basic black ribbing. They are super cozy because they are sweater material, but they look cool enough for a little boy. If you are sewing stripes this is how to match stripes.
I made Henry a size 2 width and a size 3 height which is perfect for him.
I let Henry play with an old vintage camera for the photoshoot and got some super cute photos. He’s wearing a hat crocheted by me, a mama made infinity scarf, and a mama made blazer (that I haven’t blogged about yet because it was for a wedding and we’re waiting to get pictures back). He would wear all of these on a normal day except for the blazer. He’d wear a more comfortable jacket instead.
This is a normal outfit for Henry: a tee, sweatshirt, casual pants, and sneakers (and a piece of garbage turned sword sitting in the snow next to him.)
He loves his pockets on both pairs and his zippers, and the ease of going to the bathroom. I love this pattern and do recommend it!
