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."
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.
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.
