Riggs is ready for winter. Saturday I finally got my sewing machine back out from it's summer vacation and started working on a few projects I had been planning for a while. I had a pair of old, damaged heavy-wool Woolrich pants that Steve had lying around to make some nice winter pants for Riggs. They're definitely an outer layer meant to be worn in place of waterproof snow pants on the dryer days in winter.
I love how they turned out, especially since I am such a novice at garment sewing. I added a gusset in the crotch so they would be easier to move around in, and a high, wide elastic waistband for comfort.
I also recycled an old sweater I had into some lighter weight pants for him, they turned out perfect! The little stripes are so cute. I love being able to use old things I have lying around to make into adorable and functional clothing for Riggs.
After all that sewing I was in the mood for a delicious fall dessert so I whipped up this incredibly recipe fro Apple Brown Betty from Ree at the Pioneer Woman. Warm, with a generous scoop of vanilla icecream. SO GOOD.
I hope your weekend was as lovely as mine was, filled with warmth, friends, family, relaxation and laughter. Fall is nearly here in full force people, aren't you excited?!\
