HMDH 22 - Sneak Preview
(In war time BBC English voiceover) ''We interrupt this much needed week of WIP to bring you a sneaky preview of the long awaited Hand-Me-Down-Horror'.
Yep I'm leaving you in suspenders people (in UK speak this means stockings and garter belt and the stringy bits in between, ok that sounds worse than I intended it to, I'm talking lingerie peeps) I'm finishing up some WIP projects still but I've rather sneakily been working on a Hand-Me-Down Horror to show you and the tutorial to accompany it.
So if you want to try out this tutorial check out your thrift stores now for a similar pair of floaty, voluminous clown trousers, they should be in abundance, I know I've passed them by too many times and only picked up these by mistake thinking it was a skirt.
Notes on picking the right pair of trousers to suit this tutorial:
1. Fabric wise it needs to be floaty, voluminous, pleats are ok too.
2. Patterned fabrics are best, one with a busy random pattern, small or big doesn't matter as long as it's not striped, check or plaid.
3. Longer shorts are ok but again you need plenty of fabric so nothing tight or close fitting.
All will become clear when you see the finished item.
