Oliver + S Sailboat Pants



I haven't made the Oliver + S Sailboat pants in a while and I had to trace the next size up. What I totally forgot was to add length in the rise and length in the pant leg. With that said, I like these pants a lot. Chef said "OMG! When are you going to dress him like a BOY?!?"


In the photos they really don't look all that girlie, but when I put them on... well, I am the first to admit, he was awfully pretty. 

Fabric is a pale blue cotton twill from Fashion Fabrics Club
Front yoke lining is a rocket fabric (anyone know the designer?) which I once made an adorable pair of pants for Vinny for his older brothers space themed birthday party. I clearly forgot to document the awesome outfit I made.

My partner said something remarkably similar when I made these for our kid. And mine were in super-manly denim! Men don't understand...

I'm plotting another pair in twill with brown buttons for extra blokishness.

So cute!! I can see the girlie factor though. In fact, in the last Ottobre there was a girls pattern that is remarkably similar.

sweet pants! I do know the designer, and must proclaim you a genius because I used the exact fabric for the facing on my sailboat pant! (http://www.flickr.com/photos/62188468@N00/4485007202/in/set-72157602991715013)
Ir's Keri Beyer's Rocket Scientist for In the Beginning fabrics. Such a cool print, wish I'd bought more!

That's okay b/c everyone says I dress my daughter like a boy...it drives my babysitter nuts. She gets all offended when people say "isn't he cute." Me? I just say "thank you."
Really cute pants by the way. I just bought the pattern and am excited to make a pair...someday...

Cuteness. Hilarious comment by Chef though. Pretty boys are just so much more fun though!

I totally agree. Love the pants but they are super girly. The combo of the sailor style and the cropped legs is the one two punch. But I still put them on my son!
