Old and new

My lovely friend, Milly, made these very cool pants for Will. And the main reason that I hadn't blogged about them is that I wanted to make a top to go with them. Yesterday I finally stitched the top.

The pants are made from Patterns by Figgy's Dapper Dillinger Trousers. To make the top I used the trusty Ottobre 301 pattern. I purposefully sized up for Will's top. I want him to get as much wear as possible out of that lovely Hilco campan knit.

I took this picture in a hurry, so it's not the best. I know Milly hasn't been thrilled with the fit of these pants. I have to say they look ok in the front, but are a tad too baggy in the back for my taste. Let's not tell Will that, ok? I think they look pretty darn cute on him!
