This week I made it a big one.  I made three matching outfits for my boys.  That means I made six things!

This was a ton of work!  I traced all three sizes in the shirt and in the pants.  That was a ton of tracing!  I love how the pants turned out!  I mean LOVE.  They have so many fun details I’m hoping they last and that these three don’t tear through them.  I haven’t sewn for them because frankly it’s cheaper to buy kids clothes and they wear them out so fast.

Both patterns are from Burda.  sizes 5, 9 and 10.  The tops are out of knit and the bottoms are out of stretch denim all purchased at Joann Fabrics.  I lengthen both older boys pants by 2 inches and I’m so glad I did.

The patterns were easy to follow and I had no issues.  Knits are always a learning curve getting used to again but even those went well.

The boys like them, and they think they are comfortable.  I think I will make the pants again.  I love how they fit and I like the reinforced knees, hopefully they can stand up to boyhood better than store bought jeans.

I'm a mom to five, a wife to one and love sewing. I learned when I was a little girl but returned to it in full force in the last couple of years. The process of creating things keeps me sane. I set a lofty goal for myself, one project a week for a year. I'm four months in and it's awesome. I'm amazed at how much I've learned and improved. Set a goal to learn something new and devote weekly time to it. You will be amazed at the results.
