Can you believe it?
|That is Tildy in the basket!|
| But, no, he split the backside out of all three pairs in one week.|
So new trousers were required but nothing too 'schoolish'.
Thread Theory Jedediah trousers to the rescue
I have made Hugo the shorts before.
And jeans for Jed.
So I was reasonably confident.
Stretch cotton moleskin with jeans style topstitching.
(fabric from Eliza's $2/m)
Just a hint of copper stitching
Japanese lawn facings and pocket bags.
The facings are simply another back yoke cut with the two yokes sewn as one.
I used the French seam finish on the bottom of the pocket bag this time. It looks good and stops the bag riding up.
Just to make me happy.
I shortened the legs by 18 cm using the lengthen/shorten line.
Navy is so hard to photograph.
One groovy pair of trousers.
For my gorgeous boy.
