by This is Carrie on February 25, 2010

Refashioned from men’s slacks & using the existing button, zipper & back pockets (all the icky parts of making “real” slacks), these slim slacks are a fun alternative for your hip little boy’s dressy wardrobe.

I’m stopping by from MADE…I was wondering where you got that cute jacket that your son is wearing? I love it!!!!

Isn’t it great! It was a hand-me-down that has already been passed along to somebody else’s little boy. Love having friends with great taste. I cannot remember the label. I want to say H&M, but it’s just a guess.

My goodness, I am another MADE follower and I have to say, just as Dana inspired me, you have as well. She inspired me to tap into my creative side and I started sewing lessons, but you have touched me in a different way. I am a SAHM with two lovely babies and I am training for a 5k. NOWHERE near what you have done (and I’m so jealous that you can buy one of those nifty 26.2 stickers and slap on the back of your car). It’s been a process and I’m loving it. First it’s the 5k and then a half marathon. I just wanted to tell you that you have brightened my day and made my goal of completing a half marathon seem less daunting. I completely admire you and all that you do. Thank you, thank you, for your blog.

Hi! I was trying to send you the pattern of my scripture case a couple of times, but I got a message saying your inbox was full. If you’d still like it, please let me know so we can figure out a different way to get it to you. Thanks!

I was wondering if you could use men’s pleated pants for this? My husband has several pair that he is getting rid of – I’m wondering if it would matter since you remove the waistband?
