It has been a while since I made anything for Nash, so I decided I would make him a pair of pants using the Nowhere Man pants pattern by Shwin Designs. I bought this pattern when it was on sale a little while ago and have been eager to try it ever since. I definitely want to make them in the same kelly green linen shown in the pattern photo, but I wanted to test it out on some less precious fabric first…Joann’s black seersucker* it is.
*Sidenote…I am never going to use this seersucker again. It is just such a poor quality seersucker, and it is not even cheap. Have you ever felt Robert Kaufman seersucker? I just ordered some and it feels and looks amazing for the same price as Joann’s itchy junk. And it comes in a ton of colors. AND it is 58″ wide. Glorious.
The pattern came together pretty well. Nash is only 22 months and I made him a 3T. The pattern just looked so small, but that could just be my upsizing complex. I’m also hoping I can bring down the hem and these can still fit him in the fall.
The instructions were a little vague, so I wouldn’t recommend them for your first pair of pants…but if you have made pants before, you won’t have a problem.
Sorry about the blurry pictures. I cannot get this kid to sit still for a second! I was even bribing him with chocolate chips to no avail. He would down ‘em in like .003 seconds and be off again.
I used 1 yard of fabric and only had enough leftover to make one back pocket. Darn. I think it still looks okay. I’ll pretend it was on purpose.
Crazy kid. I’m ready to make some green pants now. I’m excited.
Thanks for reading!
