For Church


Remember when I was on my pants kick? And I had cut out nine new pairs for Sawyer? Well, somehow, these pants were never sewn. They have been sitting in my WIP basket for months. Seems I lost my mojo. And I'm happy that I did.

You see, Sawyer's legs have gotten longer and all the cute little pants he was wearing in the fall are now high-waters. Poor baby #6. I finally decided if these pants had any hope of being made and worn, they needed to be longer. So I cuffed them. In polka dots.

And, while the shirts to match his high-waters still fit, they are getting a little stained. He still wears them, but I thought he needed more options for church. He gets "faux ties" to wear.

That is a great idea! I have a friend in my ward who has 3 little boys and always dresses them in ties! She would love one of these for her baby! I have to make one for her! Thanks so much for the idea...I will post a pic when I complete it!

the polka dot cuffs are a great idea. too bad high water pants aren't fashionable for little boys. at least with girls you can call them capris. :) I'm getting all the mileage that I can get with that one this summer. hee hee

The pants are just adorable as can be! Whenever I see a fabulously clever idea like this I really want to learn to make children's clothes.
