Here I made a pair of pants, a tunic, and flaps to put on boots. I love the Chronicles of Narnia movies, so I was inspired by that. Back in medieval times this outfit would’ve been for a man because of the pants, but you could also put the tunic with a skirt.
I had a two yard piece of green double-sided silk-ish fabric, so I used that for the tunic. For the pants I used a 2+ yard piece of rust and green inter-woven light-weight cotton. For the boot flaps I cut out black felt, folded it over, cut a squared-off diamond shape on the end and shoved the back fold into the boot.
On the tunic, it has four slits in the front so you can slip a belt through, or wear it without one, it also has a modesty panel in the front and lacing. I was really surprised the tunic turned out so well, because it was my first project with grommets and I made it without a pattern! Yay!
I also made the pants without a pattern. I’ve made a ton of Ken doll pants, so I just measured myself and cut it to have the shape of the doll pants, although I made the pants puffy on the top and skinnier on the bottom of the leg. The pants close with a zipper in the back, and are high waisted. They’re the second pair of pants I made without a pattern, so I’m pretty happy with them!
