Pullover pants, vol.2

April 4, 2014

They are most comfortable and warm even on a chilly morning! And I need a little colour to cheer up.

Tested with painting and dancing. These work better than the first version because the pullover is smaller and the waist fitted.

Starting point: a preloved pullover.

In action to make a fitted waist: pinning the hem part of a preloved rather sturdy t-shirt to the pullover hem. This time I cut the neckline off before sewing rather than just shutting it with stitches.

This blog is working for me already! I’ve taken some photos and made some stiches both with hand (my thing) and the sewing machine with whom I need to improve my relationship. I’ve been using socks and underpants, although I started with old c-tapes. It will be interesting to see how long it takes to actually finish and show some.

Piu piu!

My websurfing finally got the better of me and I just had to start this blog. Oh, I’d like it to be pretty and all, but for now it’s a place for dreams. Maybe some come true, too. I’ve been thinking to make a bag out of my Dad’s old jacket. I just found an inspiration. Mandinka does it fabulously!
