The pants man

Sorry about the blurry photo - the model wasn't co-operating (even after trying bribery with lollies)

I've been promising to make little Nico some new pants for a while now. He's at an in-between stage where size 1 is too small and size 2 is far too long in the legs.

I made up a pattern in approximately size 2 but shortened the leg length so that it's custom fitted to his current size. These pants were the first test fitting. A little long in the leg, and a little high waisted, but other than that, they were pretty good.

Time for sample number 2!

Pants Man is a real cutie! I have similar fitting issues with Bargy. He needs quite .. ahem .. roomy waists and short legs on his trousers.

too cute Cam! He is a gorgeous little boy.

Given his age, and the fact you are trying to photograph a small boy, I am amazed that we have anything other than a small moving blur to see! Nice pants, Ms Pops.

Boys pants. I have been struggling to find the right pattern for those a long time. The last pieces worked out pretty well though, so maybe I finally get the hang of it :-)

I think your Nico looks really cool in his pants!

Your nephews and friend's kids need a "Dressed by Cam" tag on them! The kids clothes you make are great... and the fact you even make the patterns is very impressive!

Great pants Cam! Cute model too. Are these pants from that 70s pattern?
