Superhero outfit, ready for dress up day at the gym

Do your kids have a crazy amount of energy? Sure they do, my boys do too! We recently enrolled little rascal in a gymclass at the Little Gym so he can practice his jumping and forward rolls there instead of in our livingroom.

Unfortunately our boys aren't really fond of dressing up. Hats and capes get thrown off immediately around here. So I made little rascal a practical outfit, suitable for gymclass and still superhero like.

The tank is the Twisted Tank by Titchy Threads. Laura recently added a regular tank to her Twisted Tank pattern. You can see that's the one I used here. A superquick sew with a perfect fit. It's just really fun sewing up these tanks, instant satisfaction!

I paired the tank with some sweatpants little rascal needed anyway. I used the Aviator pants pattern by Winter Wear Designs. Since these are just going to be used at the gym I skipped all the pocket options and made the most basic version.

For even more of a superhero look I added a pair of armcuffs made with fleece and velcro. The cuffs turned out to be a bridge too far, little rascal refuses to wear them. Oh well....Ready to clean the world!!
Do your kids like to dress up?
