A dress up costume for my friends little boy’s birthday present. I had the grey wool in my stash and knew this would make a fab suit of armour. I needed a yard so had to line it with something else and use a trim. I’m really pleased with it, and so was he. This was supposed to fit a 5-10 year old but he must have a big head ;-) The helemt is currently unpicked to be made bigger, this should be fun as I’ve only little pieces of grey left lol.
Lovely pattern but there were steps missing in the instructions which was a bit annoying especially after the messing around with the material!
Up cycled grey wool, lined with brown cotton, trimmed with suedette and two metal ‘regiment’ buttons from an old coat.
Hit the city streets in adventurous looks with utilitarian details like cargo pockets and belts.
Twists on feminine classics, like a bold patterned shift dress and pants with a racing stripe.
