pink pair, but without the lining.
|The "watch fob" is a pendant I found at Michaels,|
which I intend to post about once I add some tassels and better ribbon to it.
Historical Sew Monthly challenges last year, so I hope I can do better this year. These breeches fit with challenge #1.
What the item is: A pair of fall front breeches.
The Challenge, and how this item fulfills it: #1, Firsts & Lasts. The breeches were the last item needed to make this outfit wearable.
Fabric/Materials: Black cotton mystery blend with a bit of stretch one way, 2 different mostly black cotton prints, and a black plain weave cotton.
Pattern: Made by me, based on one from The Cut of Men's Clothes.
Year: Late 18th century.
Notions: Heavy canvas interfacing, woven fusible interfacing, plastic buttons, thread.
How historically accurate is it? Not very. The pattern is accurate but the materials, serged seam allowances, and machine sewing are definitely not. My pink pair is much more accurate.
Hours to complete: I don't know. I should keep a time sheet for the next pair I make.
First worn: January 29th, 2017
Total cost: $0. Everything was stash stuff.
