I made my first item from Sewing Clothes Kids Love. I'm pretty excited about them. I only wish I had done them in a non-seasonal print so I wouldn't have to make more, but I guess I'll have to get back to it and make a couple more pairs for my girl. The pattern was not extremely difficult, but it is definitely not for beginners!
Do you think this pattern could be used for boy pants or is there something about it that makes it girly? (My son needs some pants and I loathe the no shape, elastic waist pants that you are expected to make for little boys.)
Thanks for looking!

There shouldn't be any difference in patterns for boys and girls at that size.

It is not how much we have, but how much we enjoy, that makes happiness.

Before puberty, boys and girls are similar enough shape that you can dress them in either and it fits.

Also, from a fashion standpoint, these pants are totally unisex. Have fun making some for your boy.

I have that book and had been wondering the same thing, perhaps because the illustrations are very girly, but seeing your real-life version makes me think the trousers could suit little boys just as well, especially with the right fabrics (I'm thinking cord + dinosaurs?). Please post a picture if you do some for your boys, would love to see how they come out.

when i saw them, i immediately wanted to make some for my boy! i agree about the shapeless boys pants

i think they'd be fine as unisex pants, i've not read the book though (thinking of buying it now.. really like the pants Tongue)

they look great, love the print
