I’m super excited to be on my first blog tour today. Jess at Gracious Threads has a new storefront with a whole new look and feel to her website and blog. To celebrate I’ve joined with other bloggers to showcase a ‘New Look” for us.
I had a hard time picking which kid needed a new look until I realized this boy has already started creating his own fresh look the past few months. He started middle school this year and it’s been fun to see his wardrobe go from comfy sport pants and tees to skinny jeans and button-up shirts.
He is just barely hitting a size 12 and I knew the Jasper Jogger pattern would be a great choice. We headed over to Pinterest for some inspiration before we started.
These are made with grey stretch denim from Joann’s. I used the wrong side of the fabric for the main pants because it felt more lived-in and less dressy. I used the right side as contrast on all the pockets and waistband.
This is the one bum shot I was allowed 😉 I made a couple alterations to the pattern to get the right fit for my skinny guy. I tapered the waist and hips about an inch and cut off three inches from the length. I added a drawstring and grommets to the waistband too.
We headed to his school one night to get some pics and loved our little shoot. He brought a buddy along because what is middle school without your best friends?!!
I love the casual look of these pants but he loves how comfortable they are too.
Ready for the best part? To celebrate head on over to the new Gracious Threads Shop and use code ‘ANEWLOOK’ to get 40% off all patterns (offer good from November 16-29)! See how excited he is…
Make sure to check out the other great looks on the tour from some amazing bloggers.
