Lately I have developed a new obsession for classic fabrics. Unfortunately my fabric store only sells the most horrible prints that you can imagine, so I can't really do anything with it.
I am very successful in procrastinating which leads to sewing projects like these.

But let's start with a pair of shorts that I made about 5 years ago. I think they might be the 3rd or 4th item I've ever sewn. So they are very wonky and messy but if you cover the waistband with a sweater or a top I think they are absolutely adorable ^^ I wear them so often and I never shared them with you guys. Here they are. I think the fabric is some kind of cord. I can't really tell to be honest..

Shorts



With my new sweater.



The left button is for the closure, the right button just for decoration. There is a zipper too. It looks so funny, I could never wear it like this ^^





I absolutely looove the loose fit!

Sweater

Next item is a sweater that I completed a few days ago. It was the first time that I used some kind of border. I think it's a really sweet girly sweater. And it's super warm which makes me look forward to winter.



The back + shorts Wink



On my dressform



Detail of the adjustable neckline. I just made a tube with 2 buttonholes and a ribbon-like strap.



Detail of the strap.



Black shimmery houndstooth fabric for the collar.

Vest

Ok last item Smiley I bought this fabric about one year ago. At first I wanted to make a cape but then I decided to do a winter vest instead. I didn't have any fabric for lining at home when I made it so it has to stay like that. I haven't added any buttons or closures yet. I might in the future Wink At the moment it works with a belt and a safety pin.







On my dressform with a different belt.







I love that you can play with the collar.



Detail Smiley

Now I gotta go to class. Let me know what you think. Sorry for the exaggerated amount of pictures Wink

I love that vest, did you use a pattern or make it up yourself? I have some wool that is just begging to be made into that vest!!

The fact that you made shorts and so well deserves some gusto! They look really cute. And that vest! Oh man I would love to have one like that. I should try making more stylish clothes like this for a change. I have so much fabric. XD

Thank you so much for your lovely comments Smiley
I made all my patterns by byself. The vest and the sweater are really easy to make. Shorts are a lot harder, I guess I was just lucky back then that they turned out so nice Smiley
