Making of …

The sewing pattern for the vest is that of the coat from the Simplicity pattern 2172. It was a very quickly sewn piece since I left out die entire sleeves and the collar :-)
The green-brown washed-out colour gradient of the coarse cord fabric adds to the shabby look of the vest – so it is perfect for a bold pirate ;-)

The sewing pattern for the blouse is taken from the McCall’s pattern 6819. I had to change the shirt cuffs so that they can actually be unbuttoned and fit tightly on the wrist when closed.

The great pattern for the trousers is taken from F.I.M.I. (Winter 2007). The pattern fits so perfectly that I did not have to change it at all :-)
