I'm done finally with a pair of pants for Zach, Ottobre 3/07 #28, cropped cargo pants, in a ripstop material but not the usual nylon-y feel. Not sure exactly what the material is honestly, but it is a good lightweight for summer but sturdy too. These have bellows front pockets, pleated knees, one back pocket and drawstring with toggles on the legs. Zach approves!

I finally have sewn some summer things, just in time for the weather to turn a little cooler again this week. But they will fit for a little bit longer so it should warm up again. This is a romper from Burda magazine 7/2008. I had forgotten I had that issue, until I saw another review on patternreview.com of this romper. I dashed down to the sewing area, and sure enough I had saved this magazine from 2008. Woohoo for being a hoarder of patterns apparently. I love the fit, and it was very easy to make. The bonnet is so simple it took me maybe 1/2 hour, from Ottobre 2/2003, another hoarded pattern magazine. She got to wear her new set happily on a hot day too.
