I finished Ezra’s last pair of school pants-hooray! I used the Small Fry Skinny Jeans pattern by Titchy Threads for this pair. This was my first time using this pattern, and I liked it.
I didn’t use the pattern to its fullest, though. The pants include instructions for a zip fly or a half fly and an adjustable waistband. I chose to do a faux fly and an elasticated waistband.
I chose to do this because 1) Ezra said he absolutely did not want zip pants, and 2) since this was my first time making these pants, I didn’t want to waste a lot of time putting in a zipper and making an adjustable waistband if they ended up being something Ezra doesn’t want to wear.
I think they turned out nice the way I made them, but they would probably look better if I made them the “proper” way.
I made Ezra a size 5, and I think they fit pretty well. The sizing chart on the pattern seemed to be very accurate, so it was a good guide. They are definitely fitted jeans! I think they look cute on Ezra.
I used some mid-weight stretch denim from fabric.com for these. It turned out to be very nice denim.
I also used my rivet press to add some rivets.
Ezra is sick of me taking pictures of him in clothes for sure! It was really hard to get a smile out of him, but when I told him I was all done taking pictures he looked like this:
I also finished a pair of these jeans for Seth, but I haven’t taken any pictures of him wearing them yet. Then I need to make him one more pair of pants and I’ll be done with making school clothes for now.
I wanted a picture of all my hard work in one place, so even though Seth’s last pair of pants will be missing from this picture and so will the outfit Ezra is currently wearing (He had Meet The Teacher Day today and was so excited to wear his new clothes for it), I took what I could get.
Wow, it must feel so good to look at all those clothes and know that YOU made them!
Your jeans look fantastic. I like how much the topstitching stands out. I’m all for making things my kids will actually wear so I totally understand adding an elastic waistband. The fit looks great on him.
