These are the first set of photos from our trip to the German forest. We ventured to the north and checked out some of the towns around Lychen. It felt a little like home, being surrounded by the wildlife and bush like terrain. We decided to get up early to catch the morning sun rays for these photos.
I am going through a 'making clothes from already existing patterns rather then my own' phase at the moment. I don't really know why, perhaps I just need an already existing puzzle. This jumpsuit is from the last Burdastyle:easy mag. Yes! this jumpsuit was fairly easy to construct (though my poor German language skills make it a little more challenging). I have always been skeptical about these type of pants and felt that I might look ridiculous in them. But I was pleasantly surprised. I saw this fabric at the markets and couldn't resist the purchase. Initially I was going to add a contrasting colour (red) for the waist, but decided against it when I was having flash backs to Rafael from the teenage mutant ninja turtles. All I needed were some 3 pronged daggers to complete the look. Therefore the black lace was chosen.
