I had to sew something really boyish for a roleplaying game so I made this outfit as a crash test, using cheap fabric for the pants and gilet.
The shirt is from Burda 02/2010, the pants is my favorite pattern ever, the Bella pants, absolutly gorgeous pattern (I already made three pants like this one), I just changed the pockets a little bit. The gilet is a modified (very modified) japonese pattern from the “Retrospective is Stylish” book.
I’m not really happy with the shirt since everything fits nicely except the sleeves, I’m thinking about correcting that. However, I like the look of this outfit and this was very fun to sew.
Plan a weekend getaway in these sweater dresses and furry accessories.
