It seems so hard to get decent pictures of the clothes I make for myself so instead I present to you: Grumpy boy in a homemade vest (is this the right word?). He likes the vest, but not to have his picure taken. I had to bribe him with candy to get a so so shot, so I guess he will expect the same bribery next time I make him something.
The vest was a real pleasure to make. It came together easily and the edges are finished with biastape. It provides that little extra you need in the scandinavian winter.
I should have made a closeup picture on the little leather pocket detail. It's a small triangle - i put one on the back yoke as well, but you'll have to take my word for it since I didn't document it.
I have made the Hudson Pants by True Bias two times for myself (unblogged). They are both weekend favorites. True Bias has now released the Mini Hudsonpants and my kids need them! Both my daughter and son have asked for comfypants - so I thought it would be in their own interest to help out a bit. Putting pdf patterns together is not my favorite job - so why not introduce this as the next big thing in child labour after emptying the dishwashing machine? You want pants? - then cut this out and put them together!:)
I have quite a big backlog from the last two month I havent showed to you. This includes a Moneta, Simplicity 1366 blouse, Cloverdress, a coat and other tidbits.. I will get it photographed soon. Promise.
How do you keep up with the pictures this time of year? I find it so hard to get decent photos inside the house and outside it's always dark or rainy. Have you any advice? I only have an Iphone to take pictures - will it improve if I get a better camera?
