Harley Davidson Loungewear For Boys

Harley Davidson Loungewear For Boys

My nephew Julian is here to show us how to rock L’Ouseau fabric: Harley Davidson Style!

Hangout Hoodie: Harley Davidson Style

Last month I made my niece and each nephew a pair of pajamas. My goal was to sew them each something that matches their unique personalities. I let each kid choose fabric from L’Ouseau. Julian selected the softest, stretchiest bamboo rayon/cotton; and I don’t have to worry about fading or pilling.

Julian doesn’t ask me to make him things, and you know the squeakiest wheel (Sofie!) always gets the oil.

He likes the black and gray stripe. He’s too cool for characters or anything cutesy. I wanted his “pajamas” to be really special, so I tried to make separates that could be worn as for playing or sleeping.

Active Classics Everyday Knit Pants from GingerBaby Patterns

His pants are Active Classics Everyday Knit Pants From GingerBaby Patterns. I omitted the ankle cuff and tapered the length back to the hem for a straight leg version.

I made him another pair this summer, so I know the fit is great. I endorse the heck out of this pattern. I like to stick with tried and true sewing for this kid.

Honestly, Julian is as picky as most teenagers, with a really fierce sense of fashion. He’s more particular about matching  and being on trend than the rest of my crew.

Also tried and true: the Hangout Hoodie by Peekaboo Patterns. Last time I made a “secret zip-pocket” version for him.

This time I added some Harley Davidson hardware to the neckline. This is a bootlace plate. Harley boots usually come with an extra set; so I have another one too:) I’m feeling very clever because the placket is exactly the width of the plate.

The Hangout Hoodie pattern* goes up to size 10. It’s a roomy design, so I knew it would still fit well. I ended up needing to add a little length to the bottom (big surprise, he’s my linebacker) so I added a 2″ banded hem. I ran out of striped fabric and had to cut on the cross grain.

This striped fabric is a bamboo Rayon/cotton jersey. It has plenty of stretch in both directions, so it was nice to be able to eek out some extra length. It feels so nice too.

P.S. Interesting facts about Julian- because I don’t get to brag about him much here:

I call him Bean, because he has a perfect little Lima bean shaped head with just the right amount of tiny freckles across his nose.

He is double jointed and loves to creep me out by twisting his wrists, elbows, and shoulders around into weird, unnatural positions. Below, it looks like I photoshopped his head on backwards! Super freaky/awesome!

Hello. I'm Amy and I'm addicted to sewing. I borderline-hoard fabric, buttons, & patterns. Sometimes I wish I could pile my fabric up on the floor and just roll in it!

    WOW. I used to wear clothes my mom made and none of them ever looked nearly as fashionable and cool as the things that you make. I love the thoughtful and super cool Harley Davidson addition to the hoodie.
