Burda 09-2006-142 Boys' TrousersI made my son some pants and they turned out alright. I have long skinny kids and their pants are always falling down their butts. This pattern includes elastic in the waist so it was perfect. It includes a regular fly and tab closing. I used a bright orange zipper (orange is his Favorite Color) and a simple snap for the tab (I'm still comtemplating the snap press).
Here you can see the back with elastic.
I added cuffs to the inside of the pants so that I can re-hem them out if he suddenly grows 4".
In other news, I received some beeeee-you-tiful fabric from Gorgeous Fabrics. Can you tell I'm on a purple kick lately? Sheesh. From l-r, sweater knit that is two-sided, 100% cotton that Ann calls cotton "Noile", dark purple tweed. I think I will use the brighter, pinker side of the sweater knit. The "noile" is kind of like linen. I'm totally not sure how to use it but I like it. The purple tweed is to die for. I will totally will be getting more of it for a suit or something. I love it!
This is a close-up of the sweater knit. The color is more accurate in the first photo but the texture can be seen in the second photo.
