I've been busy



English Nederlands

I've been busy, the jeans are finished and I made two of the popular Ottobre tops to go with them. When I wrote my last post the pair of jeans was almost finished and the tops only take an hour or so each. A few pictures to show the different possibilities. The jacket is RTW and one of those long lasting wardrobe items.
NancyK asked for the fabric: it's a medium weight denim with a tiny bit of stretch.





When I made my muslin (no pictures, I would have liked to share those with you, but my camera was away with one of my children that day) the back wrinkles disappeard after a minor change, and in the first picture of the back they're back. But as you can see in the second picture, where I stand a bit different, it's not so bad.
All in all I'm very happy with this pattern,


If you like the wardrobe concept take a look at the blog of Krustallos, who in a post on Friday showed all possible combinations of what she made.

Ik ben lekker druk geweest, de jeans is af en ik heb twee Ottobre shirts gemaakt. Op Pattern Review zijn daar een aantal mensen heel positief over geweest, en ik heb er ook al eerder een paar gemaakt. Geweldig patroon en in een uurtje klaar.Hier een paar foto's van combinaties. Het jasje komt uit de winkel en is één van die basisitems die jarenlang meegaan.
De stof is een gestreepte denim met een heel klein beetje stretch.




Toen ik m'n proefmodel maakte (helaas had een van m'n kinderen de camera mee die dag) waren de schuine plooien weg, en op de eerste foto zijn ze er weer. Maar als ik een beetje anders sta, zijn ze weer bijna weg.
Al met al ben ik zeer tevreden over dit patroon.



Het idee van een garderobe met allemaal bij elkaar passende kleren is heel goed weergegeven op het weblog van Krustallos. Ze heeft een foto geplaatst van alle 48 combinaties die mogelijk zijn.

You know, we're all moving, acting humans, and there is no feasible way to eliminate all wrinkles. Your fit looks fantastic.
