Surfer Slacks and a Giveaway


I’ve been loving using patterns from other bloggers I follow and it’s true for the Surfer Slacks by See Kate Sew!


This was another project I did while at the beach house! Fitting, huh!?! Surfer Slacks… Beach House… And what do you think about the fabric? I found it while I was at the beach and I couldn’t help myself! I loved it! And I thought it would be kinda funny to use fabric with surf boards on it for the surfer slacks!


The pattern was so easy to follow! There’s only a few pieces, actually. Or so it seems! The kiddo and I both love the big back pockets. I think he really likes to un-button them and run around listening to them click together!


Part of the pattern is the fun big cuffs. But as I was making them, the whole family veto’ed the cuffs. I already had them cut and everything. But everyone said no. So I went with the peer pressure.


The problem was, without the cuff, with the pants hemmed, they were a little short. Then the kid had a growth spurt. Yes, in one month, he GREW!


So I added the cuffs! Now they aren’t too short and have the cute cuffs!


Another favorite part is the waistband. It’s a knit waistband that covers the elastic. It just looks so comfy to me! There weren’t actually too many fabric shops around the beach, so I ended up finding a knit tank shirt that I cut up and turned into the waist!


I don’t know if the kiddo loves the pants or having his picture taken more! But I’m pretty sure he loves both!!


So what do you think? Like the pattern? Want to make it for your little guy? Well, tpday’s your day! Kate is offering one copy of the Aspen Ruffle Dress and a copy of the Surfer Slacks to one lucky reader!
