Sewing: Aldous Fancy Pants
Yes, even MORE pants (Aldous had NO pants for fall/winter, so he's getting a lot of pants this Stash Game).
The wonderful FishSticks Inside or Out Pocket Pants, again, in a fabulous wool plaid, a remnant from Golden D'or.
This is the cheeseface.
I said "show me the pockets!".
He wanted me to take a pic specifically of him making this face.
the pants: super fine light weight wool from Golden D'or. I bought this remnant during one of their sales when I had a coupon. I think I paid about $2 for the piece. There wasn't a big enough piece for me to totally match the plaid, but the fronts match each other as do the backs. The sides don't match, and I purposefully cut the pockets, trim and waistband on the bias.
Fancy star buttons, from my Aunt Hilda.
Thanks for looking! I have two more pairs of pants for Aldous to make, plus a dance outfit. He's been wearing a size 2 dance pants and a white undershirt. The pants are SO short! After that, I'll work on some shirts, and I have a tunic to cut out for myself. Thanks for hanging in there, readers, during the trying days of Stash Game.
