The Challenge: #11 Politics and Fashion
Pattern: none. self drafted using a combination of several tutorials.
Notions: metal eyelets, lacing.
How historically accurate is it? Well when I was trying to find some gaiters for my 8th doctor cosplay I read they were like ww1 gaiters. So looked up a few online for sale on ebay and decided to make my own.
Hours to complete: It was a bit sparodic in terms of sewing so hard to keep track, but I think it was just a few hours really. The eyelets took up most of the time.
First worn: Wore it for photosTotal cost: £15 (had to buy 2 packs of eyelets coz I messed up a few.
I had a go at making the gaiters the Doctor (Doctor Who) wears. It seems they are WW1 type gaiters. Which I thought might tie in with the challenge theme. First I had to make the pattern. Which I then cut down.
I haven't had time to take new photo's with the era loop at the back for the ties to go through but it is all finished finally!
