And the rear...you can see what I'm talking about here. Unfortunately, they were too short for him but they seemed to fit everywhere else. So, I'm taking more guy appropriate fabric and making more for him. I'm really proud of these! But, the next ones have to have the fly open to the correct side as I managed to goof that up too! I also promised to try to hem his pants for him. I'll let you know how it goes.
I managed to squeeze in a bag for my sister for her trip to Brazil. I don't have pictures of it yet as it was a mad dash to get it to her before she boarded the plane, but there will be plenty to come when she returns if the bag is still in one piece by then. I'm sure it will hold, but the swiftness in which I sewed it makes me nervous that I didn't spend the extra time making sure everything would sustain a trip abroad. It is mad cute, however! This also is quite a source of pride. It was constructed from a pair of my grandmother's shorts and a t-shirt I found at the thrift store. It's too cute for words so I'll just leave it at that until I can get some pictures to say it all!
