Ottobre 4/2008 #33 Hi-Hat Pants, Size 140
Alteration: Additional length added
Athletic Jersey, self-made
I love making these pants for my son. This is the 3rd time. You can see my initial review here.
This is such a great pattern that I have yet to make him any other style pants. However, now he has put in a request for black twill with no pockets...same pant pattern though.
There are 6 pockets and boy are they time consuming! I spent nearly 4 hours on pockets alone. Ottobre's instructions for the zipper installation are great and make the process very easy to follow.
A while back I made my son this jersey, made by tracing a RTW athletic jersey that I had. See how to do this here. Since he is a Portal 2 fan, I found a drawing online and made a stencil of it with freezer paper. That was really fun to do and I need to do that more often with shirts.
It takes 9 buttons to make these, which can get pricey. What I did this time was to cut off the buttons of the pair he outgrew and just recycled them to this outfit.
