I'm sure you have at some point been in your boyfriend/husband/brother's closet? Wearing "his" clothes can be so great - but it gets better! Get him to hand it down to you and you can "tune" it to your needs...
This is what I made from my husbands old, gray suit:
I wrote a full how-to for this project in two posts:
the first one is all about the pants HERE
and the second is about fitting the bodice HERE
This post is just about show-and-tell...;-))
It can be worn buttoned up, or - as I prefer - more casual, sleeves up and collar out. I will be spicing it up with accessories, but to show you the details, I wanted to leave it plain.
Ever since overalls started popping up on the runways one (or is it already two) seasons ago, I wanted to own one. Then my husband gave me the suit, and the rest is history ;-)))
I first dyed it, then cut it up - but I made sure all the difficult-to-sew details remained intact - zipper, sleeve cuffs, collar, pockets...
In THIS POST I am showing you how I fitted the pants - something you can always use, also in a separate project...
Then ia second post - coming up soon - I will talk about the transformation/fitting of the bodice.
And I still owe you the post about my fabric-stash-diminishing projects:
And then of course, I'll continue the 1938 dress tutorial posts!
Whew! I'd better get to it now!
Hope you are all well!
