Celebrate the Boy: Corduroy Pants
Rae’s and Dana’s Celebrate the Boy series was just the motivation I needed. My husband has been saying for weeks (maybe a month….or two) that Cy needs new pants. He must have grown because most all of his pants are too short. With a few months left before short weather here in Ohio I knew I had to do some sewing. First up….some turquoise corduroys.
the pattern: Basic Pants from Growing Up Sew Liberated
the fabric: vintage corduroy from Grandma’s stash and Martha Negley’s Feathers from her Farmington Collection
the sewing: This is the first time I have used this pattern and things came together easily. I guessed at the assembly of the waistband because I returned the book to the library after tracing patterns but before copying directions. I lengthened the pattern about two inches so they will fit this year with a big cuff and next year just right.
Cy was bribed with M&Ms for these photos, but then asked to wear the pants “for the rest of the day”. I guess he likes them.
