Men's jeans to Toddler's jeans - Simplicity 3765 Again!

Hubby gave me a pair of old jeans that didn't fit him anymore for the refashion pile. My toddler son needs some new pants so I just made him a pair of elastic waist jeans with the tried and true Simplicity 3765 pattern.

Since the pattern piece has no outside seams, I cut open the inseam and placed the pattern so that the original outside seams of the jeans were preserved. I topstitched a faux fly for the front. A quick and easy refashion!

  2. Thanks Steph for your comment. I really like making clothes for my son too. It takes so little fabric and it`s so fast to make. Almost instant gratification when I see him wearing it after an hour of sewing!

    I would love to see the jeans you made your little one if you have a picture.

  3. Dear Lovenicky,

    Thank you for your recent comment on my page. That's really thoughtful. Actually, my sewing skills is bad (it looks presentable on the outside but if you look the inside- it's like a mess!)

    Wow, the toddler's jeans looks like bought from a GAP store. It is very well made. Im so impressed that it actually originated from an adult jeans.

  4. Thanks for your comment! I am actually surprised how the toddler's jeans turned out. It was embarrassingly easy to sew.....but don't tell anyone! :-)
