Yesterday and today I made some new clothes for the dad in the dolls house.

yesterday evening he got some undies, sewn by hand as Maja and I watched Professor Balthazar on DVD. The undershirt is cut in one piece with an opening for the neck cut out. It was sewn together with small blanket stitch and then turned and put on. Then I turned teh edges at the cuffs, neck and waist and stitched them down.
The longjohns were cut out and sewn on directly to the body. The material? Well, I wanted a thin soft jersey so I sacrified and old par of panties. At least i didn't make dish cloths from them.

The pictures are from a Swedish mail order catalogue from 1948.

Then today he got a shirt and a pair of overalls.

The snaps are really enormous, but you can't see them from the outside and I wanted to be able to change his clothes easily; he can't have his work clothes all the time after all.

Patterns for his shirt and trousers. It's good to make paper patterns so that you don't have to re-do the pattern drafting every time.
