Yesterday was my husband’s 41st birthday! We made a little celebration in the morning, blowing candles and eating ice cream cake. Sidra gave my husband a handmade card with his own drawing on it and a little gift.
After they left for work and school, I sewed a pair of pants for my husband’s present. Once again I use Men’s Jeans pattern from Pumila that I have made three times before. I wanted a more formal look this time so I didn’t use denim. The fabric is grey wool blend and I think it will be perfect for fall/winter. The wrong side of the fabric is smooth and has a bit of purple tone on it.
The pockets are changed back to slanted pockets as in the original pattern and the hem flared a little bit. I lined the pockets and waistband with striped lurik Indonesian fabric. The look is quite simple, no contrast topstitching or details.
I finished the pants in the afternoon and presented them to my husband when he came back from work. I was a bit worried about the fit because my husband never tried them on for fitting, it was supposed to be a surprise!
Fortunately the fit was wonderful! I guess making them four times in a row really did pay off. My husband loves the pants, especially the slightly flared hem. He’s wearing them to work right now.
Happy birthday, sayang! (it’s a nickname for the loved ones in Indonesian language, like ‘honey’ or ‘darling’) ♥♥♥
Pattern is Men’s jeans from Pumila (paper pattern), altered.
