Here are the finished Oliver + S striped pants for J.
They were made using the same pattern from this post. Its the Oliver +S Sandbox Pants Pattern & Starfish Stencil. This time I layed out the pattern, pinned it and cut it in one sitting. That only took about .5 hours or so. And then did all the sewing, start to finish, in one evening. That took about 2.5 hours. So 3 hours or so all together. Not bad. It took a lot less time, this time around, since I had used the pattern once before. Reusing patterns helps you get faster!
This fabric is not near as hefty as the last fabric I used. Its a little more flowy. It was also curtain panels and I have a lot of this material left. I did the pockets so that the stripes are crosswise. I like the contrast of the vertical and horizontal lines. Shows off the pockets a bit.
Jasper loves to model for me,
can't you tell,
he wants to be a star.
Love that boy
and he wears awesome pants!
