PATCHWORK COMBAT PANTS


Occasionally I make some clothes I am really proud of. These patchwork combat pants fall into that category. Only after I sold them did I realise how happy I was with the result. Many hours of patch-working a sewing went into these pants. 

The pants were King Gee work pants. A familiar name in Australia and still Australian made! I split the inside seam open and patch-worked scrap fabric and military badges. 

They turned out pretty good and I'm planning to make another pair soon. Now I realise why I keep all my scrap fabric- patch-working is pleasurable. 

You may not be able to get these but use the code 'SEPTEMBER' in my Etsy store and get 20% off everything with no minimum spend. One week only.

NEW LEATHER CUFFS AND BRACLETS


Back from Europe this week to chilly Sydney weather. Hard to adjust to the cold nights after hot Paris days. 


I had to jump back into work and complete these leather cuffs I had been working on. Finally got them photographed. All these adjustable leather cuffs are made from 100% reclaimed materials. All the rings and leather are from old straps and salvaged leather. 


It is nice to take a break from sewing clothes every day and I have decided to do more accessories to break the monotony.Here are my latest pieces. Hope you like them.
