I’ve been spending the afternoon downstairs at the dining table tracing a pants pattern in order to design and sew a pair of Plus Fours for my son. He’s asked me to make him some for his Tintin outfit. (Authenticity is king for my leetle fellow.) So, I’m using this pattern as a base, making the necessary adjustments, and then the only thing I’ll need to work out from scratch is the knee cuff.
What are Plus Fours, you ask? They’re knickerbockers with an extra 4″ of material that folds over below the knee.
In addition to playing Colbie Caillat’s Brighter Than The Sun over and over and… :o) I’ve been enjoying this one from Michael Bublé. It’s one of my faves.
I hope you have a great weekend!
