Girly lederhosen

I made these for Oktoberfest 2009. I love lederhosen so I made a girly pair for myself. I up-cycled a pair of my friend’s old corduroy pants. That’s why there are seams on the back of the shorts – they were the outer leg seams…. I lined the pockets with mauve satin left over from a skirt I made and appliqued on small hearts and did some decorative stitching along the flap. The suspenders are also lined with the mauve satin. They have metal belt buckles and are attached with pink buttons.

I had so much fun taking photos with the horses! The darker one kept licking me!!

I made the blouse too.
