Boys Clothing Inspiration & Recycled Fashion Finds #55 Link Up

Friday, September 21, 2012

Before we begin with this week's Recycled Fashion Finds, where you can link up your thrifted finds or upcycled creations from the past fortnight, I'd like to share with you a kids upcycled sewing project by Jacq, who blogs over at beginwithb.

I found Jacq's funky upcycled boys trousers via Project Run & Play (the blogger's version of Project Runway, but for kids)

It's not often we find cool clothes for boys, particularly when it comes to sewing.  Jacq made her little boy a pair of khaki trousers with an interesting feature:

She has sewn bias strips onto the back left leg, complete with a pocket to stash toys, resulting in the coolest pair of skinny leg boys trousers I've seen!

Look at her fabric lining choice underneath the bias strips too, so cute.

What is even better about Jacq's cool trousers, is her choice of fabric. The khaki fabric is an old bedskirt and the truck fabric is a thrifted sheet her mom found.  Upcycled fashion at its finest.  Jacq tells me that most of the clothes she creates for her little boys are made using upcycled fabric.  Her favourite project is this vest made with seersucker fabric from old pants, alligator fabric from a sheet, pockets from an old knit tee, and leftover batting pieces from a quilt.

Great work Jacq and thank you for letting me share your project with Recycled Fashion readers!
