As I’ve mentioned previously, my older son is small in both height and girth, which makes RTW pants an impossibility.
The current solution to this, is that I make his pants for him.
When Made by Rae released their new pants pattern, I showed it to my son who immediately latched on to the tartan pairs!!
I took myself off to Spotlight to look for some suitable fabric to try the pattern, and found some forest green and oatmeal check on the clearance table – sold!
I sewed them up, and handed them over for a try on and opinion. He liked them, but asked if I could make them warmer. After a bit of thinking, and a dive into my stash, I decided to underline the next pair with flannelette.
This time I took him with me to Spotties to pick his own fabric, and we came awaywith some ‘interestinng’ choices.

The lazer beam ones are my favourite!
They are so cute – the cartoon stripe is just adorable. I bet they were all the talk with his mates!
What was the pattern like -worth buying or can you still self draft at his age?
They look great. I can recommed the star wars flannelette from arthur toyes.
