Last weekend mom helped me cut out the parts for my pants. We were lucky, the fabric we had at home was just enough for Falkner's kimono style shirt and mini hakama. Phew~
Oh, and before I start. This is not the authentic way to make hakama, just for costume purposes. The patterns are just originally these huge pant's patterns which I shortened and modified later on. The modifications I just did what my brain told me to do.
|Front and back pieces cut out, two of each obviously|
|Impromptu folding (both back pieces)|
|After ironing and sewing it in place|
(I folded in the edge closest to the opening so that the zigzag won't peek out)
But upon closer inspection I noticed something...
|SKIPPED STITCHES. WHYYYYYYYYYYY|
I find it weird how I didn't get skipped stitches at all when I made Falkner's shirt earlier, it's the exact same fabric and I used the same needle...
|I see you little troll...|
Next thing to do was to sew the outer side seams closed and after that sew the inseam/inner-pant-leg-whatever seams closed.
|Outer side seams sewed, obviously one front and one back piece|
|Inseam sewed closed|
|Crotch aligned, before sewing|
Now I had something that resembled pants... or not. Instead of mini hakama I now had these humongous ultra XXXL sized granny pants! I don't see anything "mini" about them right now... Aren't they sexy?
|Ihan helevetin maukasta..|
Errr, maybe not so...
Oh well, it's not like this sucker will stay like this forever. I have yet to pleat it, add the ties and hem the pant legs. I'll fix that another time.
This is good progress for tonight. *yawns*
