It’s week three of Project run & play! This week the challenge is to sew an outfit out of denim. I really loved this theme; it helped to fill in my boy’s wardrobe ;). I decided to sew him an indigo blue chambray shirt, burnt orange denim pants, plus a quilted denim and chambray puffer vest with detachable hood.
For the shirt I used the Sketchbook shirt pattern by Oliver + s sewn in size 2 from Robert Kaufman union stretch shirting in indigo. I added a front flap to the shirt pocket as well as a small leather tag on the pocket for some extra detail, and decreased the size of the collar for a slim look.
Detail shot! I really love including little bits of leather on my boys clothes. It adds such a great finishing touch!
The pants were sewn from the small fry skinny jeans free pattern provided online here. The free pattern only comes in size two and with patch pockets rather then traditional jeans pockets. I altered the pattern to have the traditional pockets with penny pocket. I sewed them from a gorgeous burnt orange denim with Indian Summer menagerie as my lining. The size two is quite roomy and my boy will be able to wear these for quite some time!
I also added some quilted knee patches because I love to quilt all the things. 😉
The back pocket also got a little leather tag.
To complete the look I made him a denim quilted puffer vest with detachable hood.
The pattern is the Great outdoors reversible vest by Peek-a-boo pattern shop sewn in size 2 from Kaufman Newcastle denim and lining in Indian Summer menagerie. The hood I color-blocked with Andover chambray in color gray. For the batting I used reclaimed wool which I found on Etsy. Wool is seriously warm and cozy; perfect for the cold weather here in Montana!
The completed look!
Love the color-blocked hood.
So happy with his quilted knee patches!
