Title: Anorak + boonie
Post by: smeki on March 24, 2019, 03:43:35 AM
My first attempt at sewing apparel and Iīm really happy with the outcome.
Anorak is made of old czechoslovakian tarp (100% cotton) because I really like this pattern.
It has large breast pocket, one "through" pocket with mesh back, pockets on both sleeves.
Elbow pockets for padding, velcro adjustable sleeves.
Hood is fully adjustable and has small brim.
....
Boonie is size adjustable, Hiviz orange material is from moisture-wicking T-shirt  :)

thanks for any critics  ;)

If this is your first attempt at sewing clothing, then you have found your calling in life.

 I think its great work. I really like the hat. 

Far better than anything I do and then some.

Thank you for sharing

Looking good!  Where did you start with your pattern?  Are you running any specialized machinery?  It's always nice to see an apparel post.

thanks guys.
..As for pattern my mother actually helped me (she has quite a lot experiences with apparel sewing) to get the basic pattern right , she had some sweatshirt pattern with raglan type sleeves which we modified.
No special machinery was used, except for my motherīs overlock machine to finish the seams on the inside but all the straight stitching was made with my Siruba L918-NH1.
