I didn't realize until looking at these pictures now that this whole outfit is just a variation on the Ferris Bueller look. I must have subconsciously needed to reproduce one of my fave Film Petits. It's the same two patterns- the Cool Cardigan from Blank Slate, and the Oliver & S After School Pants.
These are my favorite boy pants right now. Back in the fall, I made Hendrix several pairs that were skinny style. Cute as they are, they didn't last into the new year. Not only is this relaxed fit more practical for growing kids, it also has more give for wild boys who run, dance, jump, and climb 90% of their day. Harder to wear through those non-tight knees. And these aren't so relaxed that they look goofy. They are just cool pants. I also love that they have a pro-looking back yoke and back pockets but are still a full elastic waist.
The fabric is Robert Kaufman fine wale corduroy in kelly from Sewn Studio. And I used a scrap for the pocket linings, just for fun.
The cardigan was mostly made back in September I think, when I tested the pattern for Melissa. I loved it, but never added buttons and it sat in an unfinished pile all winter. What a waste! I made it from two old sweaters, the gray one already had those pockets, which I kept in front. You can see that I had to piece the navy together in some places for the neckband and waistband, but it worked. The buttons, which I finally stitched on last week, are my favorite. I found them in the box of vintage goodies my mom gave me. I was disappointed there were only two because three really would have been perfect on this sweater. Still little-professor-chic though.
