It was 1962 and I was 12 years old. My mom was visiting friends for a coffee and I was alone at home and had the idea to sew a short and a short top out of the marvelous white linen fabric printed with tiny figures which my mother had purchased in Paris.
Since I had no pattern, I undressed up to my underwear, stepped before the mirror and fixed a newspaper with pins in front of my pants. With a pencil, I drew my leg contour and the side seam and waist shape – just as I imagined the short in my mind. I also did so with the upper part.
Today I want to show you how to make a tunnel belt. You only need some fabric of the textile you make – in this case the BoiledWear-Vest – , some inches of stretch fabric and basic knowledge of sewing or handling a sewing machine.
Just follow the images, they speak for themselves:
