Pants Progressing Perfectly

I’ve made some serious progress on the Beatles Lyrics Jeans (The BLJs? – um . . . nope. Don’t like the sound of that.) I’ve finished the whole back side of the jeans and I asked my boy to try them on so I could get a sense of what they look like. I still think they’re totally cool . . . but what is up with that baggy-ass look? The boy loves to wear his pants like that. The waistband is at his hips. It’s a waistband – not a hipband. And he could double the size of his butt and he still wouldn’t fill up the rear-end of those pants.

But anyway – the writing is pretty snazzy.

When my boy was little and wanted to pick out his own outfits, I was encouraged to allow him his freedom of expression. There were days I would shudder at his color and pattern combinations, but I let him go off to kindergarten. I remember wanting to make him wear a note pinned to his shirt that said, I dressed myself today. Now I want to pin a note to the back of his pants: The fit of these pants is in no way endorsed by nor supported by my mother.

I sure hope my boy doesn’t read my blog.

    Those are gorgeous. Tell the boy to take orders for you. Make sure you pin a note on him. Will he roll them up or hem them? He’s going to start a whole new fad !

    Pretty snazzy and very creative. I’m not going to make a comment about your son’s ass because that is wrong on so many levels!

    nice jeans! I’m totally with you on the whole jeans thing. My brother does that and it is super annoying! But it’s a phase… Hopefully M will grow out of it.

    those are really cool. I did a similar project for a show once. Two words of advice – heat set them with our iron and wash them inside out. Sharpie does wash out eventually, and the writing will stay longer if it is on the inside when washed, and has been heat set. Nothing like having to re-draw on 24 dance costumes to teach you that lesson.
