as we've got 'academic holidays' now and the weather was shit, i had some time to finally finish those pants. (they're a christmas present for one of my best friends - she's about the same size as me so i think they will fit her)





i think this one shows the color the best way:




as i couldn't stop crafting i also made those felt poulaines. the material for it had been in my stash for about 6 months... i actually made them for myself but i guess they turned out a bit too big  Sad

I love the poulaines!!! Were they difficult to make? Could you construct a tutorial?

wow, those trousers fit perfectly! I'm very impressed... Did you use a pattern? (I'm looking for a good trouser pattern with a shape like those)

okay, it's my first try on a tutorial. anyway, it's extremely simple:

1. cut out these patterns twice - you have to enlarge them to the desired size, of course - from rather thick felt.





2. sew everything together with blanket stitch, right side out.

3. add some decorative stitching to the 'opening' with contrasting embroidery thread.

they're my first ones so it took me ages to finally complete them... as i didn't find a good (and cheap) pattern, i just took the measurements of some other trousers i own and then experimented a bit. there's that odd little triangle at the fly, for instance - i had to add it cause they would have been too tight at the tummy, if you know what i mean  Wink

Oh holy HEART ATTACK, those poulaines are the coolest thing I have ever, ever seen!

Thanks for the tutorial, but, a question:  Where does one find felt thick enough?  I'd imagine the little 9x12 sheets are far too thin.  Does the felt off the bolt work, like the wool felt or acrylic felt you'd find at Jo Ann?

a besoin de parler,
I'm sure you could use thick felt made from an old sweater. I made some really cool slippers from those using instructions from a nifty book called "second time cool" that tells how to use old wool sweaters.
