My latest addition to my handmade wardrobe, Simplicity sewing pattern 8457, had a lot of new techniques for me to try! The first one being the not-elastic waistband, which took a bit of fiddling to get right.
These pants have an invisible zip on the side, which is only the second zip I’ve ever put in. (Note to self: invisible zips need an invisible zip foot!)
The pleats on the front were the first pleats I’d ever put in. It was more simple than I expected.
And those lovely big pockets with their diagonal opening – also a first, and very useful for storing things like sonic screwdrivers….
I am one step closer to putting together a totally practical 13th Doctor wardrobe cosplay! I’ve got the shirt as well, now I just need the coat, suspenders, socks, and shoes….
I am so happy with these pants – they fit seamlessly (ha) into my wardrobe, and can be whipped out to cosplay one of my favourite characters. I will definitely be making more of these – time to get planning!
Anyways, see ya!
