Pants

Monkey's knee went through yet another pair of pants, so I sewed him a pair of cargos. This time constructed from poplin found in an actual fabric store, instead of recycled from mystery clothing. I lined the hip pockets with a bright striped fabric that matched the blue perfectly. This seemed like such a great idea I started using it everywhere: all the pockets, pocket flaps, decorative hammer loop thing. I believe the the phrase used when finished was "holy crap." They seem rather bright; maybe it was too much.

Somehow, he makes it work thought.

He wore them to school (with a vest that I failed to write about earlier) on what probably was the very last cold day this year. Excellent timing.

I love those, perfect pants for if you go to a chilly beach sometime this summer too! Good idea making them long though, maybe you'll have a week or two before he grows them out. :)
