Ottobre pants from magazine 3/2012. #36 “Street Gear”.
I love all the details on these pants – especially the knee piece. There’s also a welt pocket, lots of topstitching and a more grown up looking flat front waistband.
Lucas chose some of the sneakers fabric I used to make his school bag an age ago. It came from Crafty Mamas, of course. The denim was an Op Shop find.
I love those knee pintucks and they weren’t as hard to do as I was expecting. Now, can you see that seam that hits around mid thigh? Well that’s not supposed to be there. Unfortunately, although the 152 size fits him well width wise it seemed to come out too long so that the stylin’ knee bit didn’t hit at the knee. It was more like mid calf. It bothered Lucas and I could see where he was coming from so we did a bit of a hack. I simply pinched out a few centimetres each side and made an extra seam. I’m hoping it doesn’t look too weird.
The back I’m a bit disappointed in too. I much prefer a yoke for a little more shaping.
Here’s them on Lucas:
