“Siwosz” – that’s his name – was invented as a promotion of local NGOs. Creating the costume was a challenge, but I’m really happy with the result. The set includes pants, shirt and a coat which was the most difficult part.
The pants and the shirt
They were made of a beige linen. The fabric is easy to sew so there were no surprises. The pants are simple with an elastic in the waist. The Shirt has a lace up neckline with grommets.
As I wrote before the coat was the most difficult and time consuming part of the costume. I based my pattern on an ordinary men’s jacket so there were a lot of changes. The coat had to look like there are 2 layers – they didn’t want separates.
On a women’s dress form it didn’t look good so I was a little bit worried, but when I saw it on a model … well, that was a completely different story 🙂
