Midlands MCM Expo 2nd Place

6th April 2011: Gloves, Scarf and Belt The gloves are white gabardine, with figner gussets to compensate for the lack of stretch in the fabric.

The scarf is just scarlet cotton jersey that is longer on one side to allow for the side tie.

The belt is just a stripe of interfaced bi-stretch tiped and stitched round cardboard shapes with gold klona cotton glued over the top.

6th April 2011: Trousers The trousers are a tan cord and made with a modified men's trouser pattern. This is my third pairs of men's trousers and fourth fly and I think they came out very well. There is a modified high standing waitsband that is interfaced and contrast lined pockets at the sides with white gabardine turn ups at the bottom.

6th April 2011: Undertop and Overtop The undertop is just black cotton jersey, I used an old boy's rugby shirt to get the proportions. I used the same rugby shirt to get the proportions for the top shirt which is a combination of white gabardine and green cotton jersey. Trying to make sure all the edges were clean and finished was a bit of a nightmare with this top but I managed it in the end. The blue buttons were a lucky find in a local shop, just the right shape and colour.

6th April 2011: Bag I've never made a bag before and one thing quickly became clear, it was going to need some sort of frame or support in order to hold it's shape. To do this I cut up a cardboard box to the right size and used a lot of brown tape to fix it together and give it some security. The bag istself is made from a combination of blue bi-stretch and gold klona cotton.

The detail on the front is klonda cotton glued over a shaped piece of cardboard with air dry clay gems painted silver and glued on. The bag is fully lined and functional provided the load isn't too heavy.
