July Sew Along Pattern Announcemnt

The July sew along pattern, from "Sewing For Boys", will be . . . The Little Heartbreaker Pants.


The pants go along so well with the Out On The Town Jacket, so feel free to make both if you find yourself with extra time. 


Here's a few photos from around the blogsphere for inspiration.  


I actually whipped up a pair of these around Easter and have been keeping them secret (aka; I just can't get the kid to stop moving long enough to get a decent photo).  Which means, I'll have some time to give the jacket a go.  What I love about the pants is that depending on your fabric choice, these can dress your kid up or just spice up his casual look.  I think you are going to love this pattern ladies.

  1. How did you feel about the pleats? I did these for my four-year-old and while I loved the pattern for the most part, I *hated* the pleat placement on that size. I wish there was a "no pleats please" option.

    I also found it (like all of the patterns I've done so far from the book) to be VERY wide. I narrowed the pant legs considerably and they're still nowhere near slim-fit (and my kid is not a skinny guy.)

    I did like the pockets and the waistband treatment very much.

    1. Oh, I have no problems with the pleats. It may be because I tend to make a size down for the 6 year old and then just lengthen the pants. They fit him perfectly. I love that he has a sophisticated pair of pants that he still finds comfortable.

  2. Here is my version: http://fabuloushomesewn.blogspot.ca/2012/07/little-heartbreaker-pants.html I do find them super wide! I think either my kids are super skinny or the patterns in this book fit quite wide, except for the belt! But, it was fun--first time to try an adjustable waist.

  3. when designing the patterns we wanted to be sure to add "comfort" to the equation. Little boys romp around so much we wanted to make sure nothing was rubbing there sensitive skin. :)

  4. Finished a new pair of these (in a crazy print!). I love this pattern--it's definitely one of my favorites. It's so fun watching it come together and having such a professional-looking finish with all the details. My pics are on Flickr, and I blogged it here http://willyount.blogspot.com/2012/07/crazy-pants-or-ugly-little-heartbreaker.html.

  5. FInished my pair too! Modified the pattern quite a bit so I could make them out of shirt sleeves... Pictures on flickr and more about the pants here: http://krokodilledesign.blogspot.no/2012/07/little-heartbreaker-pants.html

  6. This inspired me to finish the pair I started last December. When I realized that they would be huge for my son I put them to the side. They fit great in length now but again are pretty big in the waist because my son is very thin. I love the adjustable waist option though. Over all I like the pattern and see lots of use in the future. I added my pictures to the Flickr pool.

  7. Here is my partricipation in this month sew along. I found the pattern very easy to make, as all I have tried from this book. I also found most of the patterns to be very wide, but this time I was lucky: as I used linen fabric, they don't look so sophisticated, but they look very relaxed, a very cool pair of pants for summer. I added my photos to the Flickr group and bloggerd about them here:http://viraventos.blogspot.pt/2012/07/little-heartbreaker-pants-sew-along-july.html

  8. Here are my (most recent) little heartbreaker pants, except they're really shorts. These pants do have a wide cut but I love them. They look very contemporary while also allowing plenty of room for climbing and filling his pockets with rocks or candy or what-have-you and whatever else he gets into. I've made this pattern up several times now so you can scroll down to see the rest. http://annanicsblog.blogspot.com/2012/07/little-plaid-shorts.html

  9. Do they have to be made in the month of July? I made these at Easter and would love to participate!

  10. Help, I have a question -- is the button on boys pants on the right or left side?
    Please answer to barbara1940@frontier.com and thanks in advance for your help!

    1. I do believe the button usually goes on the left when sewing pants with a working zipper.
