More matching for the kids with a touch of gold print - Ottobre 6/2010 #31

brother and sister matching outfits
Andrei was complaining about how Eva had more and nicer things then him how he doesn't have something from a certain fabric when me and Eva re matching. It made quite an impression on me with his remarks. It is not easy for me to sew for him. Most of the fabrics I have are really not suited for boys and their gear is not easy o make either. All thous pockets that should have perfect stitching and a sharp look are just easier for me to buy then sew. But I absolutely love his interest for my sewing and the proud with witch he wears my items even with their flows so I really want to sew for him and make matching outfits with his sister for as long as they should have it.
   I started with this black stretch denim with gold print. It's quite a lovely fabric to work with and wear. And I copied paperback writer pants from Ottobre 6/2010 #31. There are pleny of 5 pockets jeans / pants to choose from my the description of this one won by by mentioning this is a particulary narrow one for skinny boys and that's my son lately. I'm looking at him now and I hardly can believe how round he used to be before he started to walk...
I still believe this pants are large on him but my husband told me several times how well they fit him, without me asking even once so I started to believe him. My son also seemed to have a great time in them and had no complain. I traced size 116 and my son is more close to 110 so I could have probably went a size down instead of folding them one more time before hemming.
My top stitching is far far from perfect but lucky it doesn't stand out on this print.
For his sister I made a pair of leggings from a single pattern piece. The fabric is stretchy enough for me to not bother with anything else and I made them a bit larger because I still was concerned with this being denim and not knit. They will probably still fit her in the fall.
I also made her a simple black raglan blouse from a very soft lace like fabric. It was part of my resolution to made some clothes for her that are less childish.
They looked lovely together.
I recently bought them fake leather motto jackets so they were quite a pair:
We've only managed to take some hurried pictures while shopping.

I have enough fabric and stretch to make a pair of Eleonore for myself but I have been losing weight since my last one and I now need to trace a new size probably and that will probably make it delay forever or not... I could always hope for a moment of inspiration :).

The new fabric bundle arrived and most of them are nice knits that I will use soon for summer gear so with this 3 items I am now only 44 items in debt...


  1. Foarte, foarte cool si m-ai lasat fara cuvinte, nu stiu la ce sa ma uit mai intai (dar stiu aleg intotdeauna copii) apoi materialul folosit si modelul de pantaloni e fain, l-am mai vazut facut si toate modelele ottobre sunt faine la copii. Perfect match!

    1. Mersi! Astea chiar au iesit nesperat de bine! A ajuns sa imi placa si mie cum le sta!
