Hipster Kids Clothes

 I'm currently working on a new campaign concept for 2015 so I thought that would share with you more about the pieces I made for Stylo Magazine for the next couple weeks. I have to tell you I'm really excited for what next year has in store, I've already got my list of resolutions started!
My biggest thing with making clothes for kids, is I want to see them wear it all the time. Adrian is currently obsessed with jeans. I don't know if it's the button he likes or the fact that if we're wearing jeans it usually means we're going somewhere but he loves jeans. And it feels good when he chooses the jeans I made for him to wear!
What I love about these pants is they are made from a stretch denim and they have the ribbed knit on the side to give him mobility. He has another pair of skinny jeans that he wears but they're stiff so he has a hard time climbing stairs or really running around. I also love the little butt pockets and the fully functional button and zip!
I love giving Adrian an earthy, relaxed boy look. We're a very bookish sort of family so I couldn't help putting a reference to one of J.R.R. Tolkien's most famous quote "Not all who wander are lost."  
Let me just say that this girl has got her modeling poses down! This shirt and legging combo has to be one of my favorite outfits I've made by far! I love the texture and color mix that the blue polka dot and rust orange offers. I actually ordered a completely different fabric for the top but it ended up being back ordered and wasn't going to arrive in time so I pulled that polka dot from my stash.
The denim like jersey for the leggings is also from my stash, that should give you an idea at how big my stash actually is, Sometimes I feel I could start my own fabric store.
This jacket was the first piece I made for the magazine. I did french seams and trimmed it in leather (vegan) I love the combination of wool and leather. I have to say that the bias tape I made from the stretch vinyl was a pain. I kept stretching it too much and then it would make the edge roll, and you can not unpick machine stitches from leather, it will just come apart so I feel I could have done a better job with this. My favorite part is the leather detail on the hood of the jacket, I love how perfect that is.
I love buffalo flannel! Brett's go to outfit is a button up shirt and a pair of jeans. Like father like son. that's the other thing Adrian is really into wearing are button ups. I chose to take a short cut, partly because I'm kind of a half-ass and I didn't have enough fabric for the cuffs so I rolled the sleeve and stay stitched them.
Lets just talk about the backdrop for these pictures for a moment. We are lucky enough to live where we have not 1 not 2 but 3 state parks within a few miles of us. This happens to be a fish hatchery and is one of my favorites. It's where we get our family pictures taken and it has great trails and an aquarium to walk through. We love coming here and throwing bread to the fish and watching them gulp it down, you may have to play chicken with some geese though, they like to block the path to your car.

  7. Hey 2 things, would you like black buttons like the ones shown or wooden buttons? And I did a rolled sleeve for Adrian rather than a sleeve that is unrolled and buttoned. Which would you prefer? the nice thing about the roll is it's stitched to stay. But if you wanted him to be able to wear it unrolled than I would go with the buttoned sleeve.
