This is the first item I have sewn with some of my Paris fabric.
I am crazy about the fabric: it is a gorgeous linen I bought from La Droguerie. It is light enough for summer clothes and has this gorgeous stone gray I love.
Un nouveau pantacourt pour Max, avec un tissu en lin acheté à la Droguerie à Paris.
It is pattern number 20 in Ottobre summer 3/2014 I got as a gift from Ottobre who sponsored us for our trip!!
The bottom hems should be elasticated but I could not be bothered and I am still thinking I like the trousers as they are now. I might wait until the boy wears them a whole day to decide if I should add the elastics or not!
Sizing is perfect: I cut in 116 , just the size of my boy and did not change a single thing on the pattern!
I adore the pleats at the knees and nice big pockets.
I like that the waist is elasticated and that is has a faux fly! I have not yet tried a real fly but I will one day! I have the perfect pattern to learn, I just need to get started!!
Le parton vient du numéro été 3/2014 de Ottobre, reçu en cadeau par Ottobre qui est un de nos sponsors. Il s'agit du patron n° 20, légèrement modifié parce que je n'ai pas ajouté les élastiques au bas des jambes.
Taillé en 116 selon la taille de mon fils, sans autre modif!
The boy is ALWAYS happy to wear what I sew for him, always. And he was so happy to wear these with his T-Shirt I got him in Paris. Perfect theme match if you ask me!!
He flies perfectly with these one, so I say it is a victory!!
