Well my day on MadeIt Fashion Week is over already... but that doesn't mean I don't have a bunch more looks to share with you! So today I'm sharing with you a quick boy look I made for C!!
These are the Oru shorts, and yes, they're still in testing! But daaaamn the lines on these are just awesome!!! I love how the side seam is really almost a front seam, which allows the back yoke to peek out and gives some fun contrasting options.
For this pair I sewed up a size 5. And again, one thing to be said is that I didn't have to lengthen them at all!!! C is just like A when it comes to sizing... slender but tall. So not having to adjust a pattern for length is always a bonus, and yes, I've probably said that in both of my last posts but it's so true! The only thing I didn't do for this project was the back pockets.... But I actually like the look of the back without them too since it gives a crisper feel to the shorts, almost a bit more dressed up if you like!
The fabric I used was an Artisan Cotton in green-blue from imagine gnats. Man this stuff was so nice to work with! It's got just enough weight for bottoms (any less and I wouldn't feel so comfortable putting the boys in these shorts ;) ) and just sews up really nicely. Plus it's hard to tell in these pictures but I love the blue undertone to this particular colourway!
Oh man, this boy was so happy when I was finally done sewing them up! He has a style of his own and coloured pants are definitely one of those things that he likes! He practically ripped them out of my hands when I told him I was done sewing them up ;) Which has made me realize how little I sew for him... definitely something I've got to change!
Well... I think I'll leave you with this face... because seriously, this is the typical 'can you pose for me' look that I get ;) And don't forget to check out look 1 and look 2, where you'll find a link to a giveaway and discount code!!
