James' Cords

I have finally finished and got a photo of James wearing the cords that I made him. It was an Ottobre Design pattern. The pattern was great, the fabric was not. It was a wide wale cord, and it was just too thick in sections to sew without breaking a needle or two. There was plenty of unpicking too. I would make them again, but not in the same type of fabric.

They look great Belinda! Hasn't James grown since you joined the sewing group? He is a cutie.

Those cords look great, it can sometimes be a pain to sew but I love the look on little boys.

The cords look fantastic Belinda! I have some here, but I think it looks a bit thinner, so I hope I don't break too many needles! Have to say I also love his shoes, I haven't been able to find nice ones for Jai lately!

Natalie - the shoes are Clarks, but I got them in Hong Kong. I haven't seen that style here (yet - maybe it will come). I love them too.
And yes, James has gorwn up (along with the other kids). I think it might be more noticeable because he has a head of hair now....finally!

I was going to say how big James looks too! I can't believe how much he has grown. Or maybe he just looks like a big boy in his great new pants and shoes.
