I've made a lot of interesting things for people to wear to faire, none so interesting as the sunshine yellow pirate shirt with ruffles.... but quite a few other interesting ones.
I have a friend; his name is Sergio. Sergio likes to design things for me to make for him and I love making the things he designs, they are always a challenge, but in a good way. He is the reason I have a hakama pattern (and his measurements are marked on it permanently) and he is the reason I figured out how to make "ninja" socks.
My first project for him... bondage hakama pants!
The second time I took on the challenge of sewing for Sergio he wanted a full outfit, instead of just pants.
He also wanted applique work done on the sleeves and trim worked into the hem... ooooh I loved the challenge of it! And he made it look good.
I love how this one turned out!
And the third presented yet another challenge for me. He wanted the scarf and the belt to have the two colors mixed together in a non-uniform way (it involved *gasp* MATH) Here is what I came up with.
Sergio has a friend who is also into the not quite traditional Japanese manner of dress and commissioned me to make him a full outfit as well.
Well that's all except for the atrocity I mentioned at the beginning of this post..
That is all for today, no Spartan since I've been busy sewing or cross stitching. Hopefully I'll get back to them soon.
Have a good day all!
