The thing with having a baby boy named Drake is, I kind of want to dress him to match his name. A cross between a pirate and a rock’n'roller. And, when he gets older, a bit of 1940′s style thrown into the mix as well. Funnily enough, it’s not that easy to find baby clothes to match any of those styles.
So, I made a pattern for baby trousers, based on a pair we already have for him.
And thus, the first step to being able to dress him in the rock’n'roll style – grey trousers made from an old tshirt.
Check out the raised eyebrow below – he’s practicing his ‘stage look’ already.
Sure, the rest of the outfit doesn’t look all that rock’n'roll, but like I said, this is just step one. Watch this space for more rock’n'roll/piratical baby styles in the future. I have fabric, and I have intentions to use it!
(On a side note, it’s interesting how much pirate-themed fabric I already have in my stash. Jolly Rogers, anyone?)
These little trousers were so fast and easy to whip up – yay for overlockers! I’ll be making him a few more soon, and if I figure out how, I’ll probably even put the pattern up here for anyone who wants it.
