I made Owen a pair of Small Fry Skinny Jeans. I know I’m biased and all that, but I think he looks pretty adorable in them.
I made these like I made Ezra’s, with a faux fly and an elastic waistband. I don’t like to put Owen in pants with a zipper yet because he’s still in diapers and I think he’s more comfortable in elastic waistbands.
I cut him a size 3T (he’s 2) to make sure they were big enough to accommodate a cloth diaper. I think the size was just right.
I added 1″ to the back rise. I also lowered the front rise a little bit by tapering from the hip down to the center front. I took about 3″ of length out. And I also scooped the back crotch seam out a little bit to make sure it would fit the diaper.
The light color is not great for a 2-year-old. He’s worn them one day so far and they were covered in stains by the end of it. But it’s leftover fabric from my last pair of jeans and Seth’s last pair of jeans. I still have enough to make Ezra a pair! That cut of fabric has served us well.
I love these jeans for Owen and I’ll be making more for sure.
