Although it is not the Theo this week I at least sewed one of my two Zonen09 patterns, the Cisse! My son loves soft trousers and a while ago I bought a few woven looking knits to avoid the sweat pants look. The fabric I used is a black jeans look from Lillestoff. For the piping details I used the yellow shirt again. All the pipings are actually empty because I removed the cord after sewing the piping. I feel the piping really adds to the illusion of a woven pair of trousers. I made the color a theme by adding yellow snaps and yellow top stitching. I cut a 92 small width wise and a 110 length wise. The length is perfect but I had to pull the waist elastic quite a lot to make it a tight fit at the waist, but this is business as usual here.
The pattern of the sweater is an adapted polo from Ottobre, I tried to mimic the Charlie, another pattern I love from Zonen09. I did not buy the Charlie because I felt I have that many similar pattern laying around, and I could make something myself. Well I am not satisfied, the collar does not have the right shape and size and the front pieces are not long enough. It still is a nice sweater, but now I could easily convince myself I really needed the Charlie pattern, so I bought it! I suspect I will make a true Charlie before my first Theo will be finished though.
My son as usual only wanted pictures with a plush friend, and I had to shoot quickly because he wanted to get back to his games.
I love to hear what you think of my creations. Feel free to leave a comment in the language you prefer (although Google translate might have to assist me if you choose something different than English, German, Dutch or Hungarian).
