KCW: Retro Sweatpants

I feel like I’m on a roll with my Kids Clothes Week sewing – woooo!!  Today I finished the Retro Sweatpants – a great winter staple for my Big Boy.  This pattern is a freebie released by Elegance and Elephants back in December.

I was surprised at how quickly they came together, even with finishing all the seams with the overlocker.  There is an option for a drawstring which I didn’t go for but there are side pockets, ankle cuffs  and the waistband has the detail of extra stitching lines which I really like the look of.

These are still far too long for him at the moment which is why I didn’t photograph them on but they should be the perfect size ready for winter.

I’m really pleased with how they’ve turned out.  They’ll be much more stylish that the $5 pairs I bought last year from the trusty department store!

Stay tuned for tomorrow’s reveal for the Little one 🙂
