Little Dude is on the petite size. I made him 4T pants with a 5T length. They fit him well. The Fly Pants have a looser fit at the top, then slim down more at the ankles for more of fitted look. I think it gives it a cool style, which is hard to find in boys sewing patterns.
Little Dude really liked the front pocket. The pocket was easy to attach and is very roomy. I think the pocket was his favorite part of the pants. Okay, maybe he liked playing with the pocket a lot…
Lol! He is my silly kid, always trying to be funny. Life is always more fun with Little Dude around. To make the pants even more stylish, I used some navy distressed grunge fabric from Allielane in Abbyville. You can find the grunge fabric here. She is always running special deals in her Facebook group. Luckily I bought several yards of this fabric, so i can make myself something as well. Here is a close up view of the fabric and the back of the pants.
The Ellie and Mac Fly Pants has extra options, such as, adding belt loops and a button to make them even more stylish. Little Dude asks, “What are you waiting for? Go buy them now while they are on sale!”
Hi I'm Lo and I love to sew and I also love to play with my two children! I am a work at home Mom of two toddlers. I never planned on staying home with the kids, however when I was 8 and 1/2 months pregnant with my first child, Little Dude, I was unexpectedly let go from my corporate job. With a newborn and a tough job market, I decided to buy a Brother Sewing/Embroidery Machine and taught myself to sew. I would like to thank the many bloggers, youtube videos I have watched and PDF pattern designers for all their help.
With a degree in International Business from Blaise-Pascal University in France I decided to open my own business, an Etsy shop. I started making baby leg warmers and then added embroidered bodysuits. I was so busy I couldn't keep up and had to seek out third party help.
After my second child, Baby Girl, life became super busy. There is something about little girls clothes that makes them so much fun to create. I started venturing out to more articles of clothing. It has been a fun adventure.
I am learning as I go. I sometimes skip steps or take short cuts, sometimes I take a long road to get where I need to go. I don't think sewing needs to be perfect, I think it should be fun!!
