I hate animal print...

Added May 19, 2015

Athens, Greece






I hate animal print. I also hate baggy pants. I don’t know how it hit me to include both in this project.
The pants are from the ODEEH designer’s pattern #127 05/2015 (it doesn’t appear in the pattern store to add a link). The pants came up even more baggy than I expected and I can’t say I adore them but they are certainly comfortable.
I wanted the blouse a bit tighter, so I went down one size. As the weather is already very hot down here, I omitted one sleeve, emphasizing the asymmetry of the model. It’s a really versatile blouse and I do like it a lot.

Material Notes

Brocade for the pants, Jersey for the blouse

    This is great!! i like it when we think “outside the square”. I ’m glad you made this it looks great-but do you get one cold arm? As floralgirl i prefer florals but i have some unusual animal print that I want to be into a dress.

      Thank you….The problem is that when I think “outside the square” the clothes stay “inside the closet”…I’m crazy with florals too….I’m trying not to show it very much but I always return there. I’m making a very floral jumpsuit at the moment…

      Thank you…I don’t know when you left Athens but now life is really hard here. However, we don’t get depressed easily….

    I love this outfit, the animal print is a unique one, it’s not the usual print. I REALLY like your version of this top, it actually inspired me to make one your way, because of the multiple looks you get from it. Also, your pictures are gorgeous, you match the background :))

      Thanks. you…It’s a really easy and nice top. Just be careful with the sizing. It’s not nice if it’s very loose.

    Great outfit! Love the fabric! Good idea to go down one size. I just finished a dress based on this pattern and it feels a little too loose.

      Thank you Olga. I think I could have gone down one more size. I don’t know what’s going on lately and many patterns come up loose. Am I shrinking? Impossible…

      Σ’ ευχαριστώ πολύ. Ούτε μένα μου αρέσει η τρίτη εκδοχή και ούτε την τέταρτη πρόκειται να τη φορέσω ποτέ, αλλά θεωρητικά υπάρχουν….
