Phoebe Philo I luh you…I mean it. She is the main cause most of my heartaches and overspends. There are things I can’t afford and Céline is one of them players. Ok, so I called Trudy (my sewing machine) for help…and a set of blinds I found at the interiors department. Yes, not ashamed to say, I bought a set of denim blinds because they were reduced in price and instead of paying 25 Euro for a meter of semi-good looking denim I paid 5 I repeat 5 Euros (prox. 1.5*2 meters/each).
I had some leftover fabric which I used for the stripes on the top and on the pants as well.
I didn’t have pattern for this outfit I made one for myself but I’m guessing if you have a pair of pijamas that you really like and feel comfortable in them you can use it for guidance, I used my pijama pants for the trousers and inserted an elastic band into the waistline. Before you stitch them together at the hemline you must stitch the stripes onto the sides of your pants otherwise you’ll have a hell of a time trying to sew those onto them at a later stage.
The top is like a varsity styled shirt or jacket but I inserted a zipper on the back as the fabric itself isn’t elastic. My my I have to say I had great fun with the stripes…sew them lines onto your shirt in a suitable order one by one on the front before stitching it together with the back part. Take your time don’t rush it because you want to have even lines as such.
Ps.: Some of the images you may find disturbing ;)
