Here we have a combination hand-picked by an 8 year old. I think the swaths of red in the sleeves help tone down the insane stripes. Alex was drawn to this fabric online once when I was shopping a Chez Ami sale. He finally gets a shirt from it a year later. The pattern is one I've made several times before: Reko Raglan Sleeve Tee (Ottobre 4-2008-26).
And it wouldn't be made by me if it didn't have a little growing room, eh? I would have liked these jeans to be a little slimmer, though. I usually reduce Ottobre patterns two sizes in the width compared to height. Here I cut a size 134 height and 128 width - although his width measurements really put him in a toddler size 104 (about US 5).
These are classic jeans with a little twist on back pocket shape. The topstitching and rivets surely make them look less homemade...I hope! I added elastic in the entire waistband due to the extra 5 inches in the waist. That definitely bunches the waist up funny, but it would look funnier if the pants didn't stay up.
