Two Pairs of Pants

I recently finished two pairs of pants-one for Seth and one for Ezra. For Seth’s pair, I used the Small Fry Skinny Jeans pattern like I have for his last few pairs.

I used some denim from fabric.com for these. It’s nice denim, but it was a little heavier than I thought it was going to be. It still works, but next time I’ll make sure I don’t use 10 oz. denim for fitted jeans because I think it’s too heavy for that.

I made these like the last pairs so there’s nothing new in the construction. Seth still wants pants with an elastic waistband because they’re more comfortable. I am thinking that will have to change soon, but for now it’s easier so why not?

Ezra broke his elbow so he has a bit of cast peeking out there.

His last pair ended up being too short after about two weeks because he’s growing tall so fast, so I made sure to make this pair longer. I still used a size 5 though.

Ezra is sooo picky about what color his clothes are. I was going to use the same fabric to make these that I used to make Seth’s pair, but Ezra said he wouldn’t wear them because that blue is “too dark”. Lucky for me, I had this bit of tan denim that he said would be ok.

Ezra made that bracelet at school and he’s wearin’ it proudly.

I really like the dark topstitching on the lighter fabric. And apparently it passes Ezra’s strict standards, because he’s been wearing them. Doing tricks in them, even.

Getting ready to bust an awesome move.

Ezra’s pants finished off the 6 yards of that tan denim that I bought in August. This is all that was left of it after cutting out his pants:

I love finishing off the last bit of a huge load of fabric. It feels really good. With those 6 yards, I made pants for Seth, Owen, Ezra, and me. I think that’s pretty rad.
