Raglan sleeve t-shirt: Ottobre 5-2008-8. This is a comfortable top - it's not so bad as I thought it was the day I made it, probably because it's now weather appropriate.
Trousers: Burda 9-2009-113.
My son took these photos just before the sky opened. We have quite the thunderstorm right now. I have new pants for day 15 - a celebration for the half-way mark! I debuted the pants this morning as my mom and I took the kids to Minnesota's largest candy store (so the sign says) and to an antique/craft sale. The candy store is in a large apple barn and quite the heaven for kids, except my oldest has abandoned his aspirations to be an inventor and decided to open a candy store with only wheat- and corn-free candy. Poor thing. Well, maybe he can do both.
The pants are a repeat of the jeans I did before (Burda 9-2009-113), except this time I added back pockets. Millie hinted (skillyfully hinted, by the way, in almost Minnesota-nice fashion) that back pockets could possibly be better instead of no pockets, and she has my wholehearted agreement there. If you're interested in pursuing the topic of pockets further, check out this hilarious and insightful post on Mom Jeans and its sequel, Grandma Jeans. (HT Quirky Threads).
Unlike my unstretchy jeans version, this corduroy pair may be a little loose. If they don't snug up in the wash I'll be tempted to rip off the waistband and take in the waist a little. It amazes me the difference the fabric will make. Will I ever master the elusive combination of pattern, fit, and fabric?
I had a little fun with the back pockets - tone on tone, since I didn't want them to be too much fun. I traced the pattern (from a Dover Publications stencil book) with pen and stitched the design by hand. Much more economical for me than an embroidery machine.
