Hooray that I finally churned something out by day three! This is my first KCWC and I am learning LOTS like don't start cutting up patterns after 10:00pm or you might chooch it up. I so wanted to make these pants (snellebroekjes means fast little pants, yeah, I gotta work on that) but I cut the curvy yoke on the front the wrong way and the end result was just so, so wrong, like wearing your underpants over your pants kind of wrong. I spent what seemed like a good portion of this afternoon picking apart the stitches I so giddily sewed late last night, cut out the last remaining yardage of navy blue cotton and bamboo terry and settled for a wide contrast in front and a narrower one in the back - no curvy yoke. I did, however, add some in-seam pockets. My guys love pockets and little boys look adorable standing around with their hands in their pockets (even if it only lasts for 5 seconds, hence no photo of hands in pockets).
The second thing I've learned so far is as long as your kid says they like it and they take off what they're wearing in order to wear the shirt that you made to school that day, it doesn't really matter if you feel discouraged, you've succeeded! He will not be obsessing over the wonky stitching on the neckline or baggy armholes. "It's comfortable, mom," he said. It's made from an old one of mine; I added some purple ribbing around the neckline and a blue pocket. He genuinely liked it! Day four tomorrow - bring it on!
