Holiday Outfit ;)

Nedre Vats, Norway






I enjoy looking in old sewing magazines, and sometimes I find patterns I want to try. This waistcoat is from Miss B 02/1992. The trousers I found in a Scandinavian magazine 09/2009. I have used cotton chambrey which is a lightweight denim, and comfortable to wear. The waistcoat is very open so I will probably need something underneath, but I like it since it’s so special. The trousers has ruffles under the knees and I like it very much.
