UPDATE: Pattern? Literally working on it right now!

I promised a pattern and a tutorial for these about a year ago! I made a new pair, and I'm tweaking the pattern now! {omg look how much he's grown since then!}

I used pretty much the same pattern as last time, just had to lengthen the legs a whole lot for my skinny long-legged kid!

Another thing I changed from the original deal was to add pocket flaps {with no pockets} on the back and stitch a little bandanna beneath one of them.

We took photos down at my dad's garage, with his bike.

Like the original, it features a cute collar, back yoke, dropped waistband and long enough legs to roll up.

 The little guy was long past due for his nap, so he wasn't entirely too co-operative!

And yes, that is a blue mohawk he now sports!

I'd been intending to these some time in the next few months, but with Project Run & Play's theme this week being Boy, I thought I may as well make them and enter. Not that I have even the slightest chance of winning, have you seen half the viewer entries? I might have been in with a chance last week for the June Bug pattern remix but guess what, all I needed to do was sew in a zip and I procrastinated and when I remembered I was 2 minutes late to enter. LAME. I'm still going to finish them and post them up because they are the cutest little outfits either!

Have you made anything Boy inspired this year yet? Enter it into the Project Run & Play flickr pool and you could win a gift voucher at! Check their blog for rules and details!
