Sewing Projects

These trousers have been my last sewing project, I made them of a massive sarong. I had it since 2018, but I was not making the most of it. I had worn my sarong as a skirt (see here) but it was not versatile enough. So I used my usual pattern for wide legged trousers, made some mistakes, and managed to create a pair of trousers. My only concern is that they create static electricity when worn over tights: it means that they don't layer so nicely as expected!.

Estos pantalones han sido mi último proyecto de costura, los hice de un pareo-pañuelo gigantesco que tenía desde el 2018, pero que no usaba tanto como se merecía. Incluso me lo puse como falda (podéis verlo aquí), pero no le estaba sacando partido. Así que utilicé mi patrón para pantalones anchos, que es el único que sé hacer, cometí unos cuantos errores, pero me las arreglé para acabarlo. Lo único que me molesta es que crean electricidad estática cuando los llevo con medias debajo, así que no son tan versátiles para superposiciones como yo esperaba.

- turtleneck, La Redoute (old) / cuello vuelto
- cardi-thing, 4x4 (old) / chaqueta agujereada
- necklace, Dayaday (old) / collar
- scarf, charity shopped / pañuelo, tienda solidaria Cáritas
- boots, DrMartens (old) / botas
- bag, Nonapapallona / bolso
- coat, La Redoute (old) / abrigo
I've shreded this striped shirt and also shreded a piece of striped fabric, to create a crisscross. I was not happy with the fabric, so sprayed some bleach on it before using it.
I've been inspired by the fabulous Spy Girl and also looked at some designer pieces from viktor and rolf 2016. Still working on it, so it's too early to see if it's going to be even wearable (nowadays my shirt looks like an Arkham Asylum resident's pajamas!).

Hice tiras esta camisa de rayas y también hice tiras una tela de rayas que tenía, y las crucé. Antes de usar la tela, la rocié con lejía para crear diferentes tonos.
Me han inspirado la fabulosa Spy Girl y también esta colección de viktor and rolf 2016. Sigo trabajando en ello, así que es demasiado pronto para ver si el resultado será cuando menos 'ponible' (ahora mismo parece más bien un pijama, de los que llevaría un residente en el Arkham Asylum!)
Have a fabulous week!

Espero que tengáis una estupenda semana.

  1. Signs of Spring! Those gorgeous blossom makes me very happy!
    Those trousers are absolutely brillaint, what a great make! I'm intruiged by your new project, it looks fantastic! xxx

  2. Your newly made trousers are fabulous, even if they won't be perfect for layering due to the static electricity! I'm loving the outfit you created with them. I'm very intrigued by the new piece you're creating. Can't wait to see the end result. The signs of Spring are a veritable sight for sore - and Winter tired - eyes! xxx

  3. the weaving with the old shirt and a piece of modified fabric looks intriguing!!
    always love to see your sewing projects!
    the static behavior of the trousers fabric is of cause disturbing - but soon you can skip the tights and you will have faboulous colourful trousers for the spring adventures :-D

  4. Lots of signs of Spring! The new trousers are fab and what a lovely mix of blues and purples you're wearing with them. It's a shame about the static electricity but at least it won't be an issue in the warmer months? I am loving the criss-cross effect of the shirt and strip of material!

  5. Oh, the blossoms are lovely - ours are a few days away from bursting open.

    That is too bad about the static with your trousers, but they are fab nonetheless.

  6. I like what you are trying to do with weaving the two different fabrics together in the shirt. It's fun to experiment with fabric even if it doesn't turn out the way you hoped it would. Those new trousers will be great for summer when you don't have to worry about layering them.

  7. The trousers look fab - so cheerful. Your shirt project looks really cool - I'd never have thought of doing anything like that.
