I have written on my blog before about what I perceive as a lack of cute things to sew and knit for little boys. Baby boys can get away with little bubble jumpers and stuff but bigger kids are harder. Enter Captain America lounge pants:
So, Kid Starfish loves wearing pajamas. For reals. We negotiate at least once a week about wearing pajamas out on errands. I decided some lightweight lounge pants couldn't be too hard to make and said I'd try a pair from cheap fabric for practice. Off to Joann Fabric we go and he picks out this obnoxious Captain America print. I balk. He wins.
I didn't really use a pattern so I can't direct you to one. I used a pair of sweat pants that fit him and went from there. If anyone wants more info or (eep!) a tutorial, I can probably whip one up.
So between these pants and Milo Doxie, I'm excited to sew for my Littles. Now what kind of nicer boyish fabric should I use for the next pair?
