mustard yellow trousers

Added Oct 25, 2011

Tallinn, Estonia






I’m finally finished with the first pair of trousers for myself!
The fabric was found from a grate in Kangadungel. Someone had cut a piece from the middle of the fabric, leaving a hole from which you could stare through. It seemed quite odd but my heart was stolen by the colour of maple leaves in autumn. It works like quite a camouflage.
So I bought it. Secretly wishing someday they’d become trousers.
Since I didn’t have an overlock until today, I had to dress most of the seam allowances. It is a lot of work but I tend to see it as an opportunity to get better at seams that require precision.

Material Notes

Cotton, polyester, atlas, zipper, metal button.


Garment Type
Cotton, Polyester

    those are amazing! Don’t you love the overlock machine, ugh saves so much time. you have a good outlook on seams though! Way better than I do!

      Yeah, but sometimes my overlock tends to give me a headache, sooo many threads to check before a perfect result.

    No, really, why are these so great?! Were they difficult to make?

      If you have a pattern worked out that fits you and lets you sit and walk without getting twisted or squeezing somewhere, then they’re quite easy.

    Väga ilusad! Kas tasku on siidivoodriga? Minu Mustard Shrug sobiks sellega kokku :P Käisin Mustamäe teel Kangadsunglis, seal küll nii ilusat kangast ei olnud, oleksin kohe ära näpanud!

      Aitäh (: Tasku on polüestrist, aga üllatavalt siidine küll.. Usun, et ainult tänu sellele augule ta veel seal oligi.
