Evolution of my favorite pants

Until now you should be used to see different versions of the same pattern from me. This is the second attempt at Burda 6991 (meanwhile there is even a third one 🙂 ). As always I used the smallest size a 34 (which is actually a 36 printed at 90%). I had to take the waist in, so I lost about 10 cm of the circumference. I guess I don’t have to mention, that I shortened the legs as well.

I wasn’t able to find wide shoe laces when I made my first pair . But this time I had the right ones in my stash. They were attached to the sweat pants I used to make a comfy dress from.

The fabric is something synthetic that has a white sleek inside and a navy velvety outside with little white crosses. As most of my fabrics I purchased it for 2€/m at the fabric market at Maybachufer here in Berlin. Well, not exactly at the market… but in front of a bakery some metres down the street, that sells fabrics in front of their store on saturdays.

As you can see, I like to combine it with a simple striped top (some of the few things I regularly wear, but that’s not made by me) Perfect for a weekend trip to the lake…

… and even longer trips (This is the Uyuni Salt lake in Bolivia)

I photographed some more makes when I was on vacation in South America last year. I just have to find some time to put them up here.

I had to “skip” MeMadeMay this year. I fullfilled my vow to wear a different me-made garment each day. But that’s what I do anyway almost the whole year around. The biggest challenge, but also the thing that MMM is about for me, is to take a picture of my outfit everyday. I hope I can take part again next year. But first I have to blog more than 20 garments I made but didn’t document here yet.

Thank you for your patience (again 🙂 )
