I'm making two garments. The fabric of the top is a knitted fabric which probably contains a mixture of polyester and cotton (I'm not totally sure though). It's really flexible which means I don't have to put in any zippers or buttons.
The fabric of the pants is a thick polyester. The pants is almost the same as the denim jeans I made a while ago.
For the top I used a t-shirts block. This block is a bit more loose than the bodice block I use for more close-fitted garments.
The design of the top is like a tank top so I drew the line of the armhole up untill it almost touches the neckline. Because I want the upperside of the top to be a bit more fitted than a actual t-shirt I drew in a dart. Now it stays more flat on the body. I've added 10cm at the bottom to make it a bit longer than a t-shirt.
Above you see me cutting the collar of the top. The fold line is on the right side of the pattern.
At the left you see me pinning the top together before sewing it. If you push yourself to always pin it first before sewing you'll always know it will be sewn straigth. Just saying.. ;)
So I'm making my first belt ever! To make it a bit more country style I use two buckles. This means the belt will contain out of two loose parts. One part has on both side an ending with holes.
I'm using two layers of faux leather with a woven fabric in between so it will be strong enough.
