But I've turned out a couple of things in the scraps of time I've found. I really like how these pants turned out. Alex needed some dressier pants, but (unlike his brother) is diametrically opposed to khaki. I think he's scarred by the pleated khaki dress pants I made him wear once. So brown it was, and with plenty of details and topstitching.
I like the shirt, except I think the choice of red for the shoulder pieces makes the shoulders appear larger than usual.
Alex has sprouted up to the next size in Ottobre (140) and, while I'm still slimming the pants two sizes as usual, I think the bigger sizes are cut a little slimmer than in the younger age range.

Next up: zippered welt pockets in fleece - something I never thought I'd attempt. I'll tell you how it goes.
