I found a woolblend fabric that Finnish Army used to their old military suits. The fabric is unused, straight from the pack. I think I bought 4 meters of it...  Grin
One thing I have made of the fabric is the knickerbockers. They turned out quite nice, and absolutely fun Cheesy They might need some kind of interfacing, since the wool-blend is little bit rough on skin. Or maybe I'll do mamelukes to wear under them!  Roll Eyes

So here they are (sorry about the poor pics, again...)



Thanks for watching, C&C's are welcome! Smiley

Also the shirt was finished today. It's 100% cotton, with puffsleeves, and buttons. Goes well with jeans and even the knickerbockers Cheesy

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

I really like them both, but the knickerbockers really make me smile!  There is something so nice about wearing wool that is lined, though.
