Back to School Tour

I sure love all this Back to School sewing I’ve been doing, especially the chance to get some boy sewing done!  Today I’m on the Back to School Blog Tour hosted by Lulu and Celeste and Sprouting JubeJube.  Of course, there’s lots of prizes and discounts for you, too!

This little guy can’t wait to head back to pre-school in a couple of weeks.  He’ll be doing it in comfy style thanks to a few of my favorite patterns. (This post contains some affiliate links.  I receive a small commission if you purchase through them that will be turned around to get more fabric to then convince you to buy more patterns 😉

I used the Jolly Roger Raglan from Patterns for Pirates paired with the Boxwood Joggers from Sew Like My Mom.  Such a comfortable, stylish outfit that he will grab again and again.

He absolutely loves the pockets- perfect for Hot Wheels and Legos!

b2s11

The slim fit is so cute and makes these joggers hip and so, so cool!

b2s8

The Jolly Roger is a pattern that will be a staple for him.  A basic raglan is essential for little boys.  The relaxed fit is perfect for his little toddler belly (which is quickly disappearing, sniff, sniff). I think he’s doing his best supermodel smolder here for you 🙂

This is the kind of outfit any little boy would love!

Outfit number two is another classic combo with a twist.  I’ve been wanting to make him some Moto Maxx joggers from Love Notions forever.  They are full of awesome details that really make them look straight out of the department store.

Double layer, reinforced knees will make these pants last longer and also up the cool factor.

b2s3

Lots of top stitching may take a bit more time but is so worth it.

b2s1

For his top I used the new Rowan Raglan from Made for Mermaids.  He really wanted a hooded t-shirt and this pattern is full of options so it was perfect.

b2s5

I never think to do raglans in a single fabric but will definitely be doing it more often now- duh!

b2s12

Almost all my fabric for these outfits came from Raspberry Creek Fabrics.  Their selection of french terry is constantly being updated so make sure you check back often.  The Boxwood Joggers and Moto Maxx pants are both made from french terry she carried (the black is usually in stock but the blue and stripes were one-time-buys).  The Jolly Roger was made with cotton/lycra from the shop also.

The Rowan was made with a super soft sweater knit I picked up in LA.

  1. Gosh so much cuteness!!! All the heart eyes for those joggers! I MUST get that pattern! I love the outfits you put together, I’m inspired to sew something for my poor boy now!

  2. After seeing your earlier post with the Boxwood Joggers, I bought the pattern and have made two pairs for my daughter. I am planning to make some for my boys as well. Love that the pattern has such large sizes for my kids that are growing up too fast.

    Love both outfits you made for your son. Which pattern do you like better, the Boxwood Joggers or the Motomax pants?

    1. That’s so great ALison! I really love both patterns. The Boxwood Joggers are so quick and that pocket is so fun but the Moto Maxx are super cool. The knees are double layer so I’m hoping that helps them last a bit longer too. They came together in a naptime so not too bad either 😉

  3. What a handsome little guy! I love comfy pants on kids, especially when they have pockets! All those treasures they find, now they’ll have a place to hold them!
