Flat Front Pants

For my sister's wedding, I was looking for cute grey linen or cotton suit. You would think that would not be difficult, I must have looked in all the wrong places because I didn't find it. I thought for sure Easter would be my golden opportunity, still nothing. I did find a charcoal colored sports coat from Janie & Jack on super sale for $22. So I decided to do that with khaki pants. That was unfortunate too, because my guy had out grown his pants... or should I say flood pants? I had an epiphany...I remember seeing on a tutorial on Dana's Made blog on making little boy pants. So I gave that a go.

This was my first attempt (sorry about the quality of the pic...I couldn't find the DSLR). The tutorial was very easy to follow and the pattern was free and down loadable. I like the owl pattern for pjs. I made another pair in khaki colored linen, but I didn't "fit" him for the elastic waist, so it's a bit snug.

Finally, I made the grey ones here. They're lined with white sheets. Turned out really cute! Thanks Dana!
