Winter is here and we need pants

I guess it's technically still AAutumn but the cold weather has arrived and Alex needs more pants. He has outgrown some of those that I made last year so I have had to make him more.

While mum was here, I cut out a pair intending for her to make them but I ended up sewing them up while she was busy cooking us some yummy yummies. Unfortunately they are now work, well loved and in the wash. No photos.

I have since made another two pairs.

Here's the first.

I love the pocket detail on it.

Well, some of the pocket detail anyway..

I clearly failed the "pocket placement" class. Oh well, Alex won't mind as he won't even notice that those are there.

After that failed attempt, I decided to make another.

I chose to use a lighter fabric this time and to make the lower panel the same fabric as the pocket detail. Oh, and no back pockets this time!!

I also like the faux fly detail in this pattern. It makes it look more like "real" pants, in my opinion. The darker pair had the same detail but it can barely be seen as the corduroy is too dark.

Oh, and pocket detail once again.

I am not sure I like the different coloured lower fabric that much. Makes it look a bit pyjama-ish.. don't you think?

I guess it will be okay for daycare.

Great pants! What pattern did you use?
Is this the burda pattern?
