1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Cottonblouse and knickerbockers on: September 14, 2014 05:52:49 AM
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

Thank you all for your nice comments!  Kiss

I'm wondering why I haven't done a maxidress before, this is soooo nice to wear! Maybe I've thought that it wouldn't fit me, since I'm just 162 cm "tall".  Grin If the heatwave goes on, I'll be definitely making some more. Smiley

It's very hot right now, at least in Finlands scale. I needed something cool but legs-covering, since I had a new tattoo made last week and it can't be in direct sunlight. So here it is, my new maxidress:

As a pattern for the dress I used an old top, and the fullwidht of the fabric is folded to the waist. Super easy, super comfortable. Smiley

Thank you all for your nice comments! Smiley

The pants are size 54B, in european sizes. They are 45% wool and 55% polyester, and machine washable, which is a bonus. Smiley I have another pair of these, and thought about making a pencil-skirt out of them.

I encourage you to try it, it's not that hard once you get the hang of it. The top is made of the leg-parts and the skirt obviously is the top of the pants. The waist of the pants is the waist of the dress. Smiley

I used a Burda-pattern, and did some alterations to it. Here's the pattern:http://www.burdastyle.com/pattern_store/patterns/sweetheart-dress-042013

I like to reconstruct things into something very different of what they've been before. Here, I used a pair on mens trousers which I found (unused, tags attached) from the second hand store. The material of the trousers was good, and the color is elegant deep blue. I've made a similar dress before, but I made some alterations to the pattern, and added sleeves. The sleeves need a bit mending still, but at the time dress is wearable. Though, I'm very pleased of the result! Heres the pics:

And here is some pics of the inside of the dress:

From back

and front:

As you see, I left the original pocets in their places, and the size&washing instructions-tags too. Smiley Only the zipper and buckram are new and bought. Smiley

Thanks for watching, please tell your opinion!
