KCW – Day 1 – Back to School Monday

KCW – Day 1 – Back to School Monday

Hi there,

It’s monday, and that is always hard on me and my little fellow. We love our weekends together. 😀

This particular monday however, I’m really excited because…. It’s KCW.
So, in honor of my toddler and his monday blues, my first KCW post is all about him.


I hardly sew for my boy, or better yet, I sew a lot (a LOT) more for my girl.
Don’t get me wrong, I love to sew for him because now a days he is much more appreciative of mommy’s hard work than the little lady.
It’s just that cool boys patterns are soooo hard to find. 😦

Then one day, Pattern Anthology happens, and you get this…


I didn’t bought the collection until the last minute, but every single day the pattern tour made me drool, so I couldn’t resist it… I’m glad I didn’t.
This patterns are the best.

I was particularly inspired by Kate and her zipper seam on the “W Pants”.


If you try really hard you can see that the pocket lining is the same fabric as the t-shirt. I didn’t want the pants and the t-shirt to be too matchy-matchy (I can’t belive I’m saying this with my admited matching fixation) but I thought this particular detail wouldn’t hurt.
The fit is awsome, at least on my little fellow.

To me raglan t-shirts are the epitome of school wear, and school and fall go hand-in-hand. So there is no better fall wear than the good old raglan. 🙂


The “Recess Raglan” doesn’t disappoint. Quick to sew, and great wardrobe basic. I LOVE IT.


  • Patterns: “W pants” and “Recess Raglan” from Pattern Anthology
  • Modifications to the patterns: The ones stated above
  • Sizes: 4 for both
  • Fabric: Twill for the pants and various cotton knits for the raglan


Off to school we go…

See you tomorrow. 🙂

Hugs and Kisses
