If you read my last post, you know that I started with these work pants that belonged to my son-in-law. He asked me to make a pair for our Big Little Man from these. He actually gave me two pair to work with and I needed both. There may be enough left to make Little Little Man a pair, too. His won't be as detailed, though.
Here's the result. As the photograph shows, there are still some rough spots that just show that Big Little Man is a worker just like his dad, even though I used the reverse side of the fabric on the body of these pants! I used the waist band, buttonhole, belt loops, and button from dad's pants just as they were, except for shortening the waist band, of course.
I wanted these to look as much like dad's as I could so I cut out the inside pocket and kept the grommet, and Cabela tag. Since I'm not selling these, I figured Cabela wouldn't mind. It's free advertising, after all. I didn't show it in these photos, but I left the tag on the inside of the waist band, too.
I did add some elastic to the back waist band of Big Little Man's pants, unlike dad's, but I thought he just might need this. He will wear a belt, I guess, so no one will know. I took the back pockets from dad's, cut them down and sewed them on with the inside fabric showing.
I hope my son-in-law likes these. I'm pretty sure that Big Little Man will love being just like his dad!
