I knew as soon as I finished his blue twill pair Jack needed a pair in denim. Again, size 4 field trip cargo pants, but this time with no added length.
I used the special jeans topstitching thread and really like the look of it.
I added a faux button to the faux fly. He loves the detail and is now convinced I have made the rest of his denim pants in his drawer since they all have the same kind of button. The only trouble I had with the pants this go round was that darn faux fly. I think I unpicked it four times before I got it passable. *Note to self, next time use the same thread in the bobbin while making a button hole.
I nearly left off the cargo pockets, but as Ben pointed out, you can never have too many pockets. I used a contrast fabric for the lining of the flap and the waistband. I left the truck ribbon off this time since he complained about it last time and guess what?! He asked when I was going to put the trucks on his pants... Silly boy.
He was excited to have his picture taken, but was upset I rolled his sleeves up. He instructed me I was not to use a grumpy photo, I had to use a happy one. This is kind of an inbetween.
I have a modification I want to try, but since it is starting to warm up I am not sure I will be making another pair of pants this year. Next up, a geranium tunic for the twins, and if I am feeling confident I am thinking of sizing it up for Abs. We'll see...
