Jonas got some new jeans a few weeks ago. New red jeans. New red Desert Jeans.
The pattern is the Desert Jeans from Ottobre 1/2014 (#30). I made the same pattern for Seth a couple of years ago, seen HERE. Seth has since outgrown that pair in the length, and they’ve been passed onto the Third Boy. Jonas needed some red clothing for a family picture with his cousins, and he also needed new pants. So the boy got red Desert Jeans.
It’s hard to get the details in these photos, especially since I went with tonal topstitching. But they have awesome tucks and bar tacks on the pockets and all the regular jeans finishes. I used the exact same fabric as last time, a stretch poplin from Jo-Ann Stores, just in red instead of khaki. Unlike last time, I didn’t bother with the back tab. It just seemed superfluous since my kids need belts anyway. Plus, I was making these the night before the family pictures, so I had to budget my time a bit.
But they turned out awesome, and he looked great. photo by FotoFly
A little brag, since this is my blog and it’s pretty much what I do here:
I made all of my children’s clothing they wore in that picture (not the cousins, just my kids), with the exception of Kael’s pants and Jonas’ sweater.
Yep, feeling pretty good about that.
Now, let’s discuss for a bit this boy and his modeling. I don’t know if I’ve mentioned it before, but I pay my kids a little bit for each photo shoot they do for my blog. I figure I make a little off my blog, they should, too, since they are the #1 reason people even read this thing. Plus, then I don’t feel quite so bad for exploiting them on the internet. So, Kael and Jonas have both decided that makes them professional models and they take these shoots pretty seriously. Seth gets annoyed, and usually insists on more money to comply, Ivy is three and spastic. But Kael and Jonas request photo shoots, and plan their poses and whatnot out ahead of time.
