Mr. Fliegfederfrei, normally the man behind the camera, will make his appearance to the blog more often! I`ve a new goal. Call me insane, but I decided not just to sew for my two girls and build my own wardrobe… nope, i`ll start to sew his stock of clothes as well. Mad, isn`t it?

Look at my handsome man. I just love to see him wearing my handmade stuff. It`s like a declaration of his love every single time he wears them. And of course, I can make him clothes that actually fit his athletic tall figure. Win win.

When it comes to menswear I`m a big fan of Thread Theory. If you follow my blog, you probably now that by the time (see more here and here)! They offer great contemporary but still classic silhouettes, that fits an athletic figure. The Jedediah Pants are a slime cut. Slimmer, than i expected them to be. I did`t sew a muslin (i never learn out of my fails) and my first pair were to small around the waistband. By about 5 cm to small (cough cough). Oh, how i hate when that happens! Surprisingly, it was a fast fix! I just replaced the waistband by a bigger one and we were so pleased with the fit. I called it a more than wearable muslin and sewed the next one the same size again just with a bigger waistband.

Both of them are Linen fabrics I bought locally. He loves to wear linen in summer, can`t blame him it`s the perfect fabric for hot days! For the chilly days to come he needs a coat. Woho!
