It's been a long time since I've posted a tutorial here.  In honor of Oktoberfest, a lederhosen tutorial! Well, the cheap and easy way to do it anyway.


You could rent costumes like my sister and her boyfriend...or just grab a long sleeve t-shirt and an iron!


Suppplies needed:
white t-shirt
1/8 yard of black cotton
1/8 yard fusible web
Iron
Sewing machine with a zig zag stitch
1/4 yard of German Awesomeness


Step 1: iron t-shirt and black fabric




Step 2: according to the package instructions, apply the fusible web to the black fabric only



Step 3: draw out 2 suspenders pieces. You may need to measure these on your model to fit properly.  Draw out the shape for the yoke.




Step 4: cut out these shapes


 
Step 5: peel off backing, place black shapes on t-shirt and iron to securely fasten.



You could be done at this point if you don't have time for the sewing machine. We all know how lederhosen emergencies just can't wait some times!  You could get a fabric pen or puff paint and draw on the black part.


Proceed if you have sewing potential:



Step 6: stitch around all pieces with a zig-zag stitch

Step 7: Put the feed dogs down on your sewing machine and move the fabric around to create a design or write your name.



Step 8: Use your German Awesomeness or borrow some to make this Oktoberfest the best!
